October Hike into Lake Marion

Cool weather. No bugs. Lots of color. I hiked into Lake Marion on Saturday. The lake is easily accessed by a trial just as you arrive at the Mission Ridge parking log. According to my GPS the trail to the lake is 1.3 miles, it's fairly easy with a few short steep sports. I saw hikers from 7 to 70 on the trail having no problems. I arrived at the lake in about 40 minutes.
