    Sorry to have to leave so abruptly, family emergencies being what they are, but things are stable right now. Thank you, Pam, Trish and Tammi for being flexible and thank you to the other drivers for squeezing you into their cars. Hope the hike was good. See you back on the trails soon.

    Collins Lake in Browns Valley where I am? I didn't know there was a trail that went around the lake. Unfortunately, won't be around the area then.

    • Carol S.

      If you look on the map on this hike, I put up a map and all the brown lines are supposed to be trails.

      April 24, 2014

  • Donna K.

    I was just wondering because the Teails.com website mentioned that tge Shingle Falls trail was nearby. Thanks, Carol

    April 23, 2014

    • Carol S.

      If there are falls, they are not shingle falls. Different trail.

      April 23, 2014

  • Katherine

    Are there any Falls along this trail that you know of?? Just curious.

    April 23, 2014

    • Carol S.

      I am still doing some research on trails and where to go.

      April 23, 2014

  • Terry M.
