Luskville Falls Trail

Delane & I hiked Luskville Falls today.  After a couple wrong turns and a quick unexpected venture into the provincial park due to missing a small sign for the falls, we made it.  But getting lost makes the journey more fun anyways, right?  Cameras in hand we started on the trail.  It was more challenging than we had expected, but we made it to the top!  The views were spectacular and we didn’t kill ourselves.  It took us 1.5 hours to hike up and 50 minutes to hike down…we are f-a-s-t.  Seriously, we decided on impulse to take another path down which didn’t have as many huge rocks to climb.  We are adventurers.

Here are some pictures of our hike.  Delane walked ahead on our way up and I went ahead on our way down:

A very rocky climb

Almost to the top of the look-out.  1km left to the tower, which was a beautiful hike, but not much to look at up at the tower which was disappointing.

The pathway was covered in leaves…it was gorgeous.  I LOVE fall.

Had to walk across in order to continue the path to the tower

Made it!

I think if you CAN get your bike UP this trail, you should be able to ride it down…seriously.

Beautiful trees.  Did I mention that I love fall yet?

It was a beautiful hike, despite the difficulty of climbing the rocks over 3/4 of the way up.  I want to do it again.  I think it would be awesome to watch the sunset from up there.  Someone has to want to do that with me, because there’s no way I’m climbing down that trail…in the dark…by myself.
