Lace up your waterproof hiking shoes for this hike where you will encounter some soggy trail sections and a couple of somewhat challenging water crossings.

Facing the gate at the far end of the parking lot, look to the right for three red diamond markers, the start of the red-blazed trail.  Turn right here and continue through lovely pine forests reaching Bertha’s Canal in .3 mile...

There had not been any rainfall for a while, but one mile into this hike, the water on the "trail" was too deep to continue, and no way around it.
