(continuing from previous entry)
After stopping at the Turkey Run Nature Center, we decided to explore a little bit of the Rocky Hollow Falls Canyon Nature Preserve. We were planning to do a lot more hiking the next day but we wanted to get a feel for the trails so we could be better prepared.
As we approached the suspension bridge to enter the nature preserve, we saw this sign for the gulch to our right:
The next series of photos is the suspension bridge and our family crossing it.
Since we only had an hour we knew we wouldn’t get too far. We chose to hike to Wedge Rock. We hoped we might get to Punch Bowl but we decided not to go quite that far since we weren’t wearing our hiking boots.
Our shoes got a little muddy as we walked through this canyon.
Not too far along the trail, we arrived at Wedge Rock.
Continuing north beyond Wedge Rock…
At this point we turned around and returned to the Nature Center and then Turkey Run Inn for checkin and an early dinner. After dinner we left the park for nearby Cox Ford Covered Bridge.
Both in and out of Turkey Run State Park we saw some Virginia Bluebells.
