Rather than a trail up to Kent Spring via Sylvester Spring, it's really an old jeep road. A very, very steep old jeep road! After all the hiking we've been doing lately, I was really happy to get to Kent Spring at the top of the road!
The Bog Springs half of the loop was nice single track that seemed to be a gentler descent. In fact, had we known how much nicer the Bog Springs side was, we might have just done it out and back.
All in all it was a nice hike. We got some good exercise in a lovely setting, we saw a couple of white tail bucks, AND we saw our first snake of the season!

Harmless thank goodness...but does this mean all snakes are starting to come out???
Tomorrow we're in for a big change in the weather (perhaps the last big storm of the winter?) and it's moving day! Luckily we have a very short drive to Patagonia Lake State Park so all should be fine regardless of the weather.
