... out to a steady but easy enough climb. The trail is not smooth as it is crisscrossed with tree roots the whole way. We soon hear the rapids of Marion Creek. It is running fairly full and fast probably due to yesterday’s rain. The trail comes to an overlook of the creek, I take some pictures and we continue on.
