Lane Cove Trail

Post by JerryB » Sun Feb 10, 2019 12:01 pm

My brother and I are planning a late May trip(3M-LC FOR TWO NIGHTS AND RH/STOLL). I seem to recall hearing of flooding on the LC Trail due to beaver activity. Anyone experience this? How bad was it. Thanks!

It was perfectly manageable last Sept. A little detour through some brush, a little wet/muddy, but not terribly difficult. Of course we never know what they'll be doing next...

A picture's worth a thousand words, right? September 2018:

Went around this spot through the brush:
