Another short 2 mile walk today. My mom and I headed to Garfield Park Reservation in Garfield Heights, a park that opened in 1895. At the nature center there were extra large maps of the park, the trails and distances clearly marked. We did the 2-mile All-Purpose Trail Loop, but next time I might try some of the smaller trails since there is supposed to be some pretty waterfalls there.
Unlike yesterday, I felt completely safe. The trail was paved and very wide and the old trees provided shade. It’s a popular park, we probably passed a dozen or so walkers and dogs and a baby. It also had lots of different picnic areas and a playground. I’d say the chances are good that I’ll be going back. And instead of going away from Cleveland like the last few days I headed toward the city.
This was hike #7 in the 60 Hikes Within 60 Miles – Cleveland by Diane Stresing.
We are finally starting to see some color – yay!!
