The backcountry near Hemlock cliffs is ruthless.
There are no established trails you can trust. Follow stream, deer trails, old logging roads if you wish, you can only be certain that they will not take you where you want to go.
Most of them end anyway, at a rock face or a clearing leaving you pathless.
It’s of course very easy to get lost here. GPS, compass, topo map are a must.
Still, this is not all aimless. We’ll find our way.
