3/30/13 Walden and City Forest
A nice day but I did not feel like a long drive so we just drove over to the parking area for Walden ( 3 or 4 miles) . We followed the loop trail to the old rail bed and were surprised at how much snow had survived our warm days.
The rail bed we took to the unnamed trail was mostly clear but the small trail we took to the West Trail in the forest , again, had lots of snow. The West Trail had the worst footing as it contained many icy patches to work around. We took the West back to the rail bed and that back to the Loop trail and to our start. We met several people for Kelley to greet but no dogs, which was unusual. She was happy to be in the woods and found several places to get in the water ( or mud) . A pleasant little 2 hour outing.
