Trip Report by Liza Mundy –
Seven hikers headed to Mud Lake in Ridell State Park. Trail was poorly marked but Alltrails mapping and participants’ printout of the state park trail map led to reaching our destination successfully. We were able to view some of the first signs of spring. A Trailing Arbitus a small white and sometimes pink flower was viewed. Accordingly, quite rare and both leaf and flower are quite aromatic. All enjoyed hiking the Jack Henderson Memorial trail on our return. The trail was well marked and provided a variety of forest settings.
