Public Service Announcement: Do not hike here alone. Better yet, just go somewhere else.
I drove 1.5 hours with 2 excited dogs, only to walk 200 meters, turn around and walk back.
I was absolutely screamed at by a very drug fucked individual, asking me who I was, why I was following him, and telling me to fuck off. My dogs stood by my side in a very growly, barky, protective manner, and I was very proud of them. I about-faced and headed back to the car.
I stopped at the train tracks for some pretty photos, in full sight and safety of the road.
