Rock Candy Trail Revisited

A quick trip to Capitol State Forest to revisit the Rock Candy Trail turned into a bit more of an adventure than I first planned on. And the extra challenge may have been just what I needed this particular day.


Carbon River Rd to Green Lake

Saturday we did a trail that I’ve done a portion of… and only did a portion of what I did before. Last year I trekked the Carbon River Road to Ipsut Creek Campground. That’s about a 10 or so mile...
