Lyle Cherry Orchard

Post by Sugar Pine » November 10th, 2021, 9:11 pm

First time at Lyle Cherry Orchard in the fall and it was lovely. The trail now has two loops vs. the out and back hike from my last visit. The Friends of the Gorge website says these Cherry (east) and Lyle (northwest) loops were added in 2019-21. The map on the sign along the trail does not show the Lyle loop, but it is on Gaia Topo.
We also walked a short distance on the convict road.

That's cool, I didn't know there was a new trail on the west side. Now they just need to carve a corridor through the poison-oak in the gully between the Convict Road and the benches!
