#Hike1 - Cedar Ridge Preserve

Date: January 7, 2017 Time: 10am

Place: Cedar Ridge Preserve

Distance: 3.2 miles

This morning I met a couple of friends at Cedar Ridge Preserve and we hiked a few trails.  It was about 20 degrees, and the trails were snow covered.  The sun was shining, the wind was still, and we were ready!

We set out on the Cattail Pond Trail, and when we came to a "T" in the road turned on to the Fossil Valley Trail.  We took the Fossil Valley Trail to the Cattail Pond and then took the Escarpment Trail back to the trail head.

The snow was making the rocks a bit slick, but overall no major issues.  We went up and down several large hills, via switchbacks and one long incline for the final stretch.  Overall, I can't wait to get back here and check out the other trails.
