#hike13 - Lake Mineral Wells State Park

Date: April 8, 2017 Time: Morning

Place: Lake Mineral Wells State Park & Trailway

Distance: 6.7 miles

The trail is transformed since our last visit.  The leaves are out, the flowers are in bloom, and the undergrowth is alive!  What a difference of seasons.  The trail was not too busy, which was nice.  We had great sunshine, mild temps, and a good breeze in a few spots.  We hiked the purple trail to the green/purple trail to the yellow trail - Primitive Camping to various colors of the Cross Timbers trails.  We saw the old elm listed on this trail map, and it was worth the trek!  See the photos below.  It was a lovely day of hiking just under 7 miles - worth the wait, being so wet last weekend probably helped the spring effect this week!

A little more than halfway, we had to cross the river and I think that was Chewy's favorite part...


Happy Hiking!
