Cook’s Landing 11/23/2008

Samantha and I went to CL this morning and walked from the start of Isabella Jo Trail along the backwater to the River Trail down that and back to the start on Isabella Jo. We discovered a new trail – Pfeiffer Loop Trail that connects to the River Trail near the start of the Big Dam Bridge and then again a little further down and Isabella Jo Trail near the Campbell Lake Bridge Trail. It is unpaved and looked muddy and we weren’t prepared for that so we stuck to plan A.
