Throughout the hike we will observe various degrees of forest recovery from the 2016 fire. We will also witness the old "leave no trace " practice vs. the new "Leave No Trace "efforts. The hike will seek out more home places before we head to the CCC camp. Time will be spent learning about the 3 decades use of this area. Leaving the CCC camp, we will walk through the farmland the forest is reclaiming to 3 more home sites and view various artifacts. We will emerge at the Sugarland Cemetery. Depending on time/weather we will add two more stops before hiking back to the parking lot. Total hike miles 7.5, rated moderate-strenuous.
