Leg 1 -  Burkett park > WS to LL Connector > Rollercoaster > West Potts Creek > Potts Creek (NE) > Playground Trail > Bell's Point > Playground Trail (N) > Flintstone > 5 Points Junction       4.0 miles

Leg 2 - 5 Points Junction > Turkey Creek > Potts Creek (NE) > Burkett Trail > Burkett Park    4.7 miles

Temp started at 60, ended at 76.  Sunny with very light SW 0-5mph breeze.

Easy peaceful hike along dry, easy to see and traverse trails.  Some birds have become more active now that Spring is in the air.  Saw a couple of large flocks of birds heading North.  Few animals were out though.  More yellow flowers are blooming and some yuccas (?) as well with a center stalk of flowers (photo attached).  All in all it was a very nice hike along familiar trails.
