NEMO BRIDGE-OBED SCENIC RIVER

Distance:   5 Miles

Rating:   Moderate

Driving time:  1.5 hours

Elevation Gain:   800 feet

After pre-hiking the 10-mile difficult hike this week, we encountered a number of fallen trees on the trail requiring climbing over them or trail blazing around them thus making this hike strenuous in addition to manuevering the rocky and steep stairs and rocks to climb over as stated in the original hike description.   However, the first 2.2 miles of the hike to Alley Ford was untouched by fallen trees and is rated moderate.  At that point we will go down a rocky trail .3 miles to the river for  lunch which will be the steepest part of the hike.  In the interest of safety, this appears to be a good alternative.
