Comments: Have walked this section before and enjoyed it. Decided to do a leisurely night hike and sit and read along the way (Kindle for iPhone--can now read in the dark! Hurrah!) Started right at sunset after eating a delicious cheeseburger at Top Notch burgers, spent a few hours strolling and reading. Used iPhone as a flashlight two or three times for creek crossings or uneven descents, just to be safe, but could have done without as terrain is all pretty easy. Very dark under bridges but I hummed a little tune as I approached so as to warn homeless people camping under them that I was coming. I did not want to shine a flashlight in their eyes so did not use it. Had to keep an eye out behind me for cyclists since I was not very visible and they were not expecting me, but all went quite smoothly and was very pleasant.
