That's my surmise as well. I've seen also, about 4 or 5 all black wooly worms. That... is weird.

Hanson's Point Trail Conditions
« on: February 05, 2017, 02:50:31 PM »

How is the trail out to Hanson's Point now?  I haven't been in a few years and it was really overgrown in places due to new growth from the fire.

It is overgrown, but passable.  It may not be passable with another couple of years growth, unless users maintain the trail.

I was just there.  Definitely overgrown, but nothing that prevents the trail from being passable or easy to follow.  There are a lot more downed trees now that there were, but they are all fairly easy to step over and don't disguise the trail at all.  If anything, the most difficult part is actually identifying the entrance to the trail on the return, from the large camp spot.  The overgrowth disguises it just enough that someone not comfortable being off trail could get turned around.  Somebody should probably just flag that tree before a solo hiker panics and gets lost.

The first time I went out to Hanson's last winter the whole trail was flagged. My return trip I had no such luck. The return is a bit tricky if you don't remember which way you approached from. I know I was doing it solo and had poke around a little bit before I had my AH-HA moment.

When I was there last March what I found most difficult with overgrowth were the side trails to views on the left before reaching Hanson's Point.
