Now that the weather is warmer, we decided to take off on a one that we have not been on lately. The Boone Fork Trail is a 4.9 mile loop that is listed as "strenuous" because of the constant changes in elevation, steep cliffs, crossing creeks and a ladder. The kids were excited. The last time we did this trail, I hike the whole thing with Patrick in a back back and Ann was 4.5.
So we set off after we finish Sunday School at church. It was about 11:30 when we reached the trail head. The kids were excited and we had a back back full of water this time.
The first mile or so is fairly flat and easy. Then it starts to get harder. Soon we were climbing over trees to stay on the trail.
But the views were awesome at the top of the trail.
And the kids found cool places to hide and take a rest from hiking.
Look for more blogs this summer as we explore more trails. The kids are really excited to find new ones after today.
What is your favorite trail and where is it?
