I found this little trail on the app All Trails. I am really loving this app.
This trail is only a few miles from my house which makes it convenient to get to. A friend of mine has been wanting to go hiking with me. She runs 10 plus miles a day, but hiking is completely different. I was worried I wouldn’t be able to keep up with her, and she was worried she couldn’t keep up with me. I found it encouraging in the first 15 minutes when she told me she was having trouble keeping up. I must admit, I was pushing it a little hard just to make sure I could keep up. Funny how our perspectives of ourselves and our abilities are often different from how other people see us.
It was a beautiful 3 miles hike. Lots of nature, dirt trails, a few creeks, and even a paved section to end the route when she felt it might be getting too rough. I will definitely be coming back here. Maybe next time I’ll bring a stick so I can knock down all of the spider webs with something other than my face.
