Fitness hike with a friend.  Temps in the mid to upper 80's, sunny and very light breeze.

Trails were muddy in spots due to a downpour last night but otherwise, not too bad.  Still overgrown with vegetation in spots.

Didn't see much wildlife except for the lizards and a very cute pyrrhuloxia fledgeling (photo attached). 


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

Water and shade available at Bell's Point (near the northern end of Playground Trail).

Water, shade and info kiosk available at 5 Points Junction (where FLintstone, Turkey Creek and River Bend trails meet).
