It didn’t feel like it had been over 3 years since last hiking this part of OHT section 2. There was a good rain a couple days earlier so there was water running everywhere and I was glad not to contend with the snow and ice like last time.
The hike was an an out-and-back from the Ragtown Road trail head to Salt Fork Creek and back. The temperature peaking in the low 40’s along with a stiff breeze made sure I wasn’t going to feel overly warm on this trip, even with that 1000′ climb over Potato Knob both ways.
I took a small detour to see Spirits Creek Falls this time but somehow missed the fact that the even taller Robinson Falls are in that same area, so they are on the itinerary for the next trip.
