Trenton Falls Scenic Trail
This weekend was the one… at least for the Trenton Falls Scenic Trail. The Town of Trenton opens the trail for one weekend in the Spring and one weekend in the Fall (OK, late Summer). Once again I missed the weekend in the Spring but I was very determined to catch it this Fall.
I waited until late in the afternoon on Saturday to make my way up to the trail. I was hoping to catch some softer light but I forgot how the shadows from the gorge walls start to interfere with the views. I think I was able to compensate enough to grab a few good images.
Going late in the day helped me to avoid most of the people and allowed me to take my time setting up the tripod. I always try to stay out of other people’s way so I end up waiting a little for my turn at the view. There are a few rare occasions when I am not afforded the same courtesy but not this weekend.
My only complaint, if I’m allowed to have one, is at the end of the trail, when you would have the closest view of Upper High Falls, the historic society setup a table and had an individual taking about the fossils that can be found. Of course, all this was right in front of the fence at the very best location for a camera and tripod. Luckily, the previous, stop had a really good view and there had been a good effort to clear away a lot of the growth that would have impeded the view.
I’m going to keep on eye on the website in the Spring. I don’t want to miss it again! The water flow is always greater and presents a much different view of the gorge…
