Dove Crest & Arcadia Trails

3.48 miles   ★★★★½ arcadia management area is fast becoming my favorite place to hike. this was another pretty loop. i really like the arcadia trail. the spider webs were horrid, though. they were so bad i took to walking with a stick flailing up and down in front of me like some sort of demented […]
