It was a beautiful day at the partially-reopened Henry Coe State Park. We got 17 miles and 4400 feet elevation on the day, including the new-to-INCH Domino Pond Trail.
The Domino Pond Trail a pretty trail going through a little canyon, but unfortunately the pond was dry, which means we'll have to go back in the spring.
The route along Wasno Road took us right along the edge of the fire damage. One side of the trail was all black, and other side was normal. It was good to see that the fire road did its job in helping to contain the fire. Fortunately it looked like most of the trees had survived. Big Henry took a big hit, but he will be back!
