We did this trail today, so the day’s tally was 4.6 miles. This trail is winding and not a loop, so we decided to take a portion of it, and then come back via the road.
We parked and took a bit of Buck Run Trail to Striper, making our way to Turtle Island Trail. The views were not the best, while you can see the water, you rarely get a chance to touch it, and the terrain is unremarkable. I am glad that we ticked it off, but I don’t see ourselves doing it again.
We brought my Mom along with us and she was able to make it, but it was about her limit. So consider that if you are bringing older folks with you.
And is that far left picture the largest Cherry tree I have ever seen.
