Why You Should Go Now
Fall foliage
The Gun Battery and picnic shelter.
Today was a great day for a fall hike so we headed to the Island. We parked down at the Gun Battery and did some exploring around that first. From there we chose to hike the Bluff Trail to Lake Pondilla. It's a little over a mile, one direction. There is a bit of elevation gain and loss, but nothing that even small children couldn't handle.

The trail was in great shape, no muddy spots at all. It was slick in few spots due to the freezing temps last night and sometimes thick layer of fallen leaves on the ground. There are a few spots along the trail that have some steep dropoffs, so keep the little ones close at hand.
