A week ago from Saturday, 5 of us arrived at Highbanks Metro Park for a hike of undetermined distance, maybe up to 9 miles. We arrived in hiking clothing except for Kenda Janet who as usual, outdressed us all.
Nothing strenuous here but good views and the trail condition is fantastic when it may be too wet to hike elsewhere. The trails are wide and packed so easy to walk. Having said that, not much climbing but looks like a great place for trail running.
We reached an overlook with good.....
....views and then after heading back for the balance of our 6+ mile hike we met....
.....these two ladies who are training for a 500 mile hike in Spain! Hiking an average of 10 miles each day, they won't be burdened with a heavy pack, can resupply at the end of each day and sounds like a very fun time.
