Default Bullen Hollow Trail

Had some time a few days ago to visit Bullen Hollow in Greene County. Did not have time to hike all the way to Low Gap on Little Bald Mt, but hope to return there when time permits.
This is a fine trail that follows the ridgeline above Margarette Falls. We could hear the roaring voice of the falls, ever diminishing as we climbed the ridge, but never could see the falls themselves (I think GW is planning to post some photos of the falls). But there were some fine clear views of the ripe hills!

Autumn colors were at a peak here - and a very colorful peak, thanks to a wet summer and some recent frosty nights.

Not much wildlife seen - that's one problem with fall - walking though all those crunchy leaves scares most of the "critters" away. But this little friend paused long enough for a quick shot.

The trail crosses Bullen Branch, a lovely little stream that is one of several feeding Margarette Falls. It's full of bright little riffles like this one.

Our goal was a small pond not far from Low Gap, to look for some unusual dragonfly species. No dragonflies seen, just pretty reflections.

Had to run most of the way back to get back in time, so no photos of the return trip. Sure hope you enjoyed this hike up the ridge, and glad for any comments/critiques/suggestions!

Nice little hike mole.
At first I thought you were hiking up to Margarette Falls, and wondered why you didn't post a shot of the falls there, then I realized my mistake. if you ever decide to run down that trail let me know first OK? I got to be there with my camera cause that's one run I got to see!

Another lovely walk, thank you.
I like your new friend, he looks a little like Jiminy Cricket, maybe a distant cousin.
Your skies are fantastic and my favourite, besides Jiminy, is the single leaf floating, beautiful.

Your foliage looks about peak and quite beautiful it is. The bright blue skies are setting off those colors so well!

Your pictures of the water reflections are great. I like this kind of shot! Sometimes the autumn colors make the water look amazingly beautiful.
