Location: Gaines Creek Park

Difficulty:  Solitude:
Miles Hiked: 0.70 Mile  Elapsed Time: N/A

Comments: This seems like a nice little trail with a lot of promise when the wildflowers come into season. For example, one of the signs read "Butterfly Meadow". There was also a large number of blackberry vines in flower all over the east end of the park. There was a fair amount of birds song right at sunset. There is also a noticable amount of traffic noise from SW parkway, but tolerable. Found one of two geocaches in a neat spot.
