Last Sunday (October 26th) Ellie and I drove up to the Dingford Creek trailhead (the road was a lot less potholed than I expected) and did some scouting on that end of the Middle Fork Trail. There are some great trees just West of the trailhead in an area I have called "Pleasant Surprise Grove".
The reason for the name is that we actually went up off the trail first and, to my frustration, did not find a lot of old growth in areas I had high hopes for. Found two areas I called "3 big trees" and "4 big trees" but nothing that was notable enough to recommend. Then, on the way back, we walk into this group. Pleasant Surprise!
