Out     Burkett Park > Suzanne's Trail > Rollercoaster > West Potts Creek > Armadillo > Turkey Creek > 5 Points Junction   4.0 miles

Return  5 Points Junction > Flintstone > Playground > Armadillo Ridge > East Potts Creek > Burkett Trail > Burkett Park     3.4 miles

Upper 40's and overcast to start but the clouds cleared and the temp was up in the 60's by the time we finished.

Nice leisurely hike.  The trails were still damp after Saturday's welcome rains.  Not many birds and no wild life observed.  Any hike is a good one so I won't complain!

NOTES
