The hiking group intended a hike which circled Allen Lake (above Cumberland) on November 2nd but when we reached the lake, we found the trail leading around it to be pretty much submerged in water (those pesky beavers!). Oh well....plan B took effect. We got out the map plus Bill B.'s gps and basically followed our noses, taking a variety of trails gradually leading us back to the trailhead. Lots of fun! Due to recent rains, the way was fairly muddy and wet, but once we left Allen Lake, all trails taken were negotiable. The Cumberland Brewing Company was the 'watering hole' of choice post-hike for our debrief.
