225 (OR MAYBE 223) STEPS

So, moving on up the road we saw a sign for Mill Bluff State Park and decided to check it out.

Their are ten bluffs in the park, but the main trail goes up Mill Bluff itself – straight up for 225 stone steps.

I know because Sue counted.

However, later I read that there are 223 steps and that they were built back in the mid 1930s by the WPA which might be the reason they were so uneven (and maybe two were broken in two). Some were big steps, some were little steps and like I said, they seemed to go straight up.

But the walk to the top was worth it as we looked out at the autumn-colored trees and a few of the other bluffs.
