    Marty and I completed the Sulpher Springs trail. From the parking lot to the top we encountered heavy rain and trail flooding, but it was mostly dry on the back end down to the car. Sorry Janice we chose to pass up your favorite - Brissey Ridge, because we were soaking wet, and a little chilly.

    To get to the Sulpher Springs Shelter from the park entrance:
    1 Turn into Paris Mountain State Park and stay on that road for approximately 0.9 miles. That road is also called State Park Road, which is not the same State Park Road you take to get to the park.
    2 Take the first right, you will see a sign indicating to go right for Shelters 5, 6, A, B. Do not continue straight it will only take you to the campgrounds and RV camping area.
    3 You should still be on State Park Rd at this point. At approximately 0.8 miles you will come to Sulpher Springs Shelter to your left. It will be the first one and only picnic two shelters you see to the left.
    4 Turn left at the shelters and left into the first parking lot. We will meet in front of the first shelter. If the parking area is full or blocked off there is another parking area just past the second, larger shelter.

    I originally scheduled this hike for Tuesday 10/8/13, but I had to reschedule it because I will be out of town that week. I apologize if this has caused any inconvenience!

    There may be a lot of people in this group who don't know me yet or haven't hiked with me before. Also this will be my first time officially leading a hike. So I thought I would share a little about myself. I'm 40 years old and an experience hiker/backpacker. I've been hiking since I was in a teenager in Boy Scouts. I've done a lot of hiking with Janice since joining this group and have helped her lead a few hikes. I'm a nice, friendly and easy to get along with person. I like to plan a hike in detail. I know my way around Paris Mountain State Park like the back of my hand. When hiking in a group I'm hiking with a I'm very good about not getting that far ahead of the group and waiting for the group at trail junctions, road crossings, hill tops. Also I'm always happy to share experience. This will be my third hike as a hike leader and would welcome any feedback as to how I'm doing in this role.
