We found ourselves with a three-day weekend and nowhere to go. Usually, we would go visit family but due to the pandemic, we haven’t. Instead, we have been searching for fun, socially distant ways to get out of the house. And hiking has proven a great way to keep the kids entertained, get moving, and have fun, while staying safe from Covid.
The trail winds its way around the lake shore and two ponds. You will also see an osprey nest.
The trail also crosses the road and goes past the boat ramp, picnic shelters and ends at the beach and playground. Since it’s cold, we didn’t picnic, play, or swim. We did let the girls play in the sand for a bit.
All in all, we have decided to explore a few more state parks in our area. Hiking trails are a good way to get out of the house, get some fresh air and get moving, without the worry of getting sick.
Have a wonderful Wednesday! I can’t wait to show you where we go next week.

That’s a very well-kept park! And the lake looks so still.
Were there any especially lovely plants along the trail?
There were a few! It was a lot of fun.
