Location: Memorial Park

Difficulty:  Solitude:
Miles Hiked: 2.90 Miles  Elapsed Time: N/A

Comments: We went because we were in the area, and were dressed for walking. This 5K walk is on a crushed granite surface and loops around Memorial Park's golf course. Dogs are allowed if on a leash and you clean up after them. People walk, jog, and run on this track pretty much 24-7. You are going here for exercise, not for the scenery or solitude. :-) The track is very wide which accomodates the crowds nicely. I found this track a nice change from our usual 3 mile excercise/walking sites in the area. Although we didn't go, there is a Smoothie King in the tennis area adjacent to the track! Also, there are some scenic hikes in Memorial Park, we just haven't done them yet.
