Falls road – Wrights lane (Lake Roland) – Orange trail

We start out as usual parking on the side of Falls rd. following the red trail paint.

This morning one of the houses above the trail draining their pool because it smells like pool water and the whole path is flooded. I have to tippy toe around not to get wet. The morning rays are pretty though.

We are following the orange trail on the right, after we crossed the bridge. We are taking the second “entrance” up the little hill. It will be a quiet walk since most people stick with the main path usually.

Every so often there are reminders of the color of the trail on the trees if we would forget…. Here it’s a slight uphill, both sides covered with running weeds and grasses.

Some flowers are small and some are hiding in all the green vegetation.

Common rose pink, Nettle?

This trail has several elevation and surface changes even though I still cannot say it’s even medium hard. We have to be careful when you get to the basalt stone covered path, can be tricky.

I love the difference surfaces, here there are still small stones covering the path but fallen leaves are starting to hide them.

And here hundreds of roots crossing our path over a small hill to give a little challenge.

And sometimes it’s a man made change over mud.

I forgot to take pictures when we turned right towards back to main trail (red) to get a bigger loop out of today’s walk. But on this pic we are already back on the red where we can again enjoy the trail art.

When the red trail splits we follow the right side to get ahead of some other walkers on the trail. I thought….not with Mag in tow….smelling everything….

Before we would get to the bridge, we take the small path down the water so Mag can take a dip. There are some friends here already!

Spending an extra 15 minutes playing with the other doggies was a blast! Now he is tired, wet and dirty! Let’s go home!

True mileage is 3.3 miles by ResQwalk. This App seems to be more accurate than AllTrails.

Have a great day!
