So I'm back in 2014 to see how much this trail and hike has improved over the
past four years.

The Banks Trailhead was still under construction when I was here last. They did a
nice job. And the parking lot was pretty full by the time I got back here at 14:00.
Pretty deserted at 08:30 when I arrived though.

Distance to the Manning Trailhead: 3.9 miles
Distance to the Buxton Trailhead" 6.8 miles

It was pretty frosty starting out but it turned into another gorgeous bluebird
sunny day with temperatures in the high 50's by mid-afternoon.
