My husband and I went for a hike around the White Tail and Old Kate trails yesterday for the first time this spring. It has been so rainy that we haven't been able to get over there until now. The trails are in really good shape despite the rain. There is a little bit of mud and wash on the north side of the white tail trail, but it was fine. We just had to do a little more paying attention. The best part of the hike was the waterfall, which is flowing like crazy. It's so pretty and really relaxing to sit on one of the benches and take in nature.
