New Wonder Trail to Fell on Knee Trail 9-20-21

Photos by Jerry and Randy, Track by Jerry

Monday started crisp and clear with traces of Fall in the air.
We were starting in Upper Lithia Park by the New Wonder TH.

I met with two new members, Phyllis and Kathy, before the hike to witness their waiver forms and vaccination cards and welcome them to the AHG.

Everyone was eager to hit the trail as it was actually chilly in parking area but soon warmed up as the trail rose out of the initial canopy.

Our group of 10 were in excellent spirits to finally be out hiking in clean air with clear views. We could see Grizzly Peak as we climbed and Mt. Ashland when we reached our lunch spot up where the Wonder Trail meets Fell-on-Knee Trail.

Fall colors were displayed in the giant yellow Maple leaves that fell on the trail.

We encountered several other hikers and runners on this early Fall day as these trails in the Ashland watershed are popular with the locals.

All were happy to make it to the top, a climb of 1,712' and return to parking for a total of 8.35 miles.

Some of us took refreshments at Skout's, the new beer & food restaurant just across from the entrance to Lithia Park.

It was a great day with more Fall hiking to come.
