October 15th! I had to check. So late in the foliage season and still not much color. None the less it was a great hike. Missy, the boarder collie, was well behaved and healed so close to me that she sometimes tripped me. There was a couple on top and another I met coming down the path just before the top. Near where the path leaves the road I also met a gang of young people but on the way back down I met no one. I stayed on the top until sunset so it was getting dark on my decent and very dark by the time I reached the parking area. Nice hike. I should do it more often!
