* Park Trail *
Hike Type: Day Hike
Distance: less than 3 miles
Highlights: In the warm months the woods are very dense giving you a feeling of seclucion.
Summary: There is not a sign marking the trail entrance, but the trail is clearly marked with orange paint marks on the trees or with orange ribbons. The park trail is fairly new and they continue to extend it.
The trail is narrow but clean and well defined as it follows a creek out and back. We hiked the trail in January 2007 as you can see by the pictures.
This is the main entrance to the park and here we are at the trailhead.
It is January and you can see the running cedar along the ground and it opens up the views to the creek and more.
We like the narrow trails along with the multiple creek crossings. An interesting site, an old Pepsi Bottle stuck on an old limb. Not sure how longs its been there.
These old trees had to be part of an old homestead because they look out of place. The daffodils under these large trees would also be a clue.
The first picture is looking down the road to the parks sports areas. In the background to the park is Spencer Mountain.
