Distance: 4.2 miles Difficulty: Easy Rating: 4/5
Conditions: Beautiful blue, clear sky. Light breeze. Low 70's. Trails damp but little standing water.
Cardinals (one of my favorite song birds) and Red Maples were the stars. Both of these painted the forest with bright red! Squirrels and chipmunks made a few appearances, mostly near the stream or drainage areas. I disturbed a large owl (not a clear enough sighting for an identification) near the southern property line; getting glimpses of him flying to a new roost. A gray titmouse watched me closely as I descended the "hickory trail" to the "Nature Trail".
It was a beautiful day to enjoy GOD's Creation. This is a wonderful little park.
