There was evidence of ground fires on all 2 1/2 miles to Governor’s Rock. Some trees were compromised and either fell from the fire or were cut by firefighters as a break. Most of the largest and healthiest trees showed nothing more than a slight char on their trunks near the ground.
Thankfully, this trail was spared and it was clear all the way up with only 1 detour. I was thankful that the CCC Shelter about 1.8 miles from the trailhead was spared as well. It has been there a really long time and it would be a shame to loose it.
