Park Mid-Section Burkett to Bell's Point Fitness Hike

This horned toad was sharing part of the trail with us today while on East Potts Creek Trail. After snapping his picture, he scurried off into the brush.

A fitness hike with friends - weather was warm, light breeze and sunny. 

After the recent rains, the park vegetation is growing even more!  The trails were dry and the only difference is some of the looser topsoil was washed away. 

I had the opportunity to meet Mr Bell at Bell's Point where he was enjoying the day.  I thanked him for all the work he had done for the park - Bell's Point, Bell's Trailhead (North Shore) and Bell's Cross (near Big Hill) are all named after him in recognition of his over 30 years of volunteer work. 


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