On the Trail

Celebrating National Trails Day on June 3, 2017 was a day I had looked forward to for weeks! First learning about the day via Twitter and via an email from National Center for Families Learning’s #FamilyTrails, I saved the date and hubby and I planned to participate. We wondered if our Noccalula Falls Park was participating. Thanks to a link in the email from Family Trails, we checked for events in our state and learned that Red Mountain Park in Hoover, Alabama had planned for a big family event complete with vendors and food trucks.

We registered online a few weeks in advance of the event date and we did attend. It was an amazing hike for us and we logged over 10,000 steps totaling over 4 miles. Nature’s scenery plus old buildings from the old railroad site, had hubby and I in awe. Caves, walking trails, swings, streams, vegetation, trees, Segways, and zip lining were some of the many offerings in this park. Families with pets, individuals, friends and groups could be found throughout the park, enjoying a day outside.

As we walked, I wondered aloud asking what other trails (see Wonder #1469) could we explore? We did recall that two years ago we participated in a Family Bike Ride on the Chief Ladiga Trail in Jacksonville, Alabama. It stretches over seven miles and leads to the Georgia State line. We took pictures and explored the area on the Ladiga Trail, just as we were doing at the park today. So, grab a walking partner, family or friends. Now is the time to enjoy the great outdoors and explore a local trail.
