Trip Report: Evening Hike - Church Fork

Evening Hike - Church Fork
By Stephen Dennis
HIKE 12/12/2017 NTD+

Reasonably comfortable temperatures in the parking lot, and then temperatures rose as we hiked further up. A clump of three trees fell across the trail below the stairs. Back at the bottom, temperatures were much lower than when we started.

A guy in light shirt and shorts was running up Church Fork yelling for his his dog. He and the dog had hiked up West Grandeur and down Church Fork. The dog decided to go back down West Grandeur. Saw the guy near the trail head later. Dog found by spouse on the other side, and he was headed out.
