The volunteers have been working hard on the trails all summer and it shows. Trails are firm. No soft squishy mud yet, with the exception of the very bottom of the slip & slide, directly over the culvert at post 16, and the little walkway over the gully between 15 & 14 (the walkway that used to be where the bridge is now), which is very slick.
If You walk between posts 16 and 15, you may be able to see the very last of the bleeding hearts, only a plant or two, but a sweetly nostalgic remnant of Summer.
Do be watchful of a Y-shaped fallen tree that juts out over the trail about two feet at an awkward angle. The Y of the branches pokes out horizontally, about four and a half feet above the trail.
The steps at the bridge have been a little loose. They are not getting noticeably looser, but do use some caution.

The summer is over and we have leaf-carpeted trails all to ourselves. Get out htre and walk the trails before they get muddy. It's a wonderful time to walk the Hansville Greenway!
