VIT Mt Arrowsmith road and trail head 05
The views start immediately when you leave your car. The first time I saw the little pull off parking area, it was 40 years ago. We'd bushwacked and stumbled our way up the hillside from Cathedral Grove, the ancient towering old growth forest below Mt. Arrowsmith, where we'd started 3 hours earlier. We only had a vague sense of where we were going, following creeks and good fortune. The grins on our faces finding out we were on the right track was tempered by realizing we could have driven our car to this point, but such are adventures in high school.
