The first causeway needs to be elevated!
Did this hike counterclockwise and it's a really nice hike but perhaps the sate should build an elevated bridge over the first causeway since it was overflowing with water that was a foot deep. Personally, I just pulled up my pants and ran through it, but it was dagerous and would not recommend doing it until the water levels reced.

Excellent blazes and not possible to get lost with such Also, if possible you should allow images o be uploaded straight from the computer instead of needing to adding url. Hope you can make this happen.
