Park Mid Section Burkett to Bell's Point

Saw quite a few weeds with their seeds waiting to be taken by the wind or when touched by humans or animals.

An easy hike through the middle section of the park.  Hot temps, little wind but no bugs!  It has been awhile since I hiked so I took it fairly easy and just meandered through the trails.  I took a shortcut when I left Bell's Point on an old, dirt service road that went WSW for awhile until I came to the Turkey Creek Trail that crossed the road.

Not much to report - the hike was pleasant and I saw one hiker on a park road at the beginning of the hike but nobody on the trails.


Water, shade, info kiosk and dry toilets are available at Burkett Park.

Water and shade are available at Bell's Point which is shown on the park maps.
