PossumHaw Trail

It was quite a workout negotiating the trail covered in ice. Even Zach chose to leave the icy path in favor of the slightly softer surface in the woods.

Difficulty:  Solitude:
Miles Hiked: 0.90 Mile  Elapsed Time: 45 minutes


Despite being one of the shortest trails, I find this to be one of the prettiest ones here at the the Dallas Nature Center (recently renamed by the Audobon society). 

I chose this trail today because the recent ice storm was just now thawing out and I wasn't sure of the trail conditions.  While not a long hike, I got quite a workout negotiating the mostly icy trail, yet the beauty of the frozen landscape was spectacualar!
