An easy outing today as I wandered North to the multitrail junction where the Turkey Creek, River Bend and Flintstone Trails converge.  My return route was along some old, unused service roads I hadn't been on for some time. The entire route is easily seen with a park map.  I saw a dozen whitetail deer as I was on the Playground Trail near Bell's Point, otherwise, an uneventful hike but nonetheless, an enjoyable one!
