It’s really criminal that we have had such perfect hiking weather and I’ve been stuck in rehab. Today, I decided to throw caution to the wind, and just try a “baby” hike. Heading out this morning, I wasn’t really thinking about a big hike, but it was such a gorgeous day, I really wanted to be on a trail somewhere.
We discovered a trail that had recently been cleared out for hikers, and learned that several other trails are currently being readied for summer.
Located inside of Gatewood Park, this trail takes you over a few creek crossings to get to some nice views of the lake, and it certainly lives up to its name.
You can see that beavers have been chewing on the trees.
We did have to cross the creek a few times, but it was pretty easy.
And the lake was really beautiful!
The thing I liked most about this trail, was the orange markings. It is so well marked that I think I could bring my hiking women here and not worry (too much) about getting us lost.
These markings were well positioned.
But it really didn’t matter where we were, just being back in the woods was enough to bring me joy!
Fingers crossed that my body stays as happy as my frame of mind.
