We went up to Pine Log Trail yesterday. Mostly to check it out and find the trails. We were pleasantly surprised by the condition of these trails. They were great! We only hiked about an hour so we did not make the entire loop. From what I understand the East Loop is about 2 hours and next week better prepared with water and such we will try that hike.
My camera's battery was dying so we only got a few shots. We did see a couple of squirrels and about 4 deer. Yes my kids actually stayed quiet enough to see some deer, then another hiker was on the trail with their dog and that was it for seeing deer.
