5 miles of hiking • 750' elevation gain •
Sad week. I've been caring for my mom on hospice for the past two months,and she died on Wednesday. Feeling really numb. The woods were just the balm I needed.
Forest Park was eerily quiet. Germantown and Cornell Road are both closed-due to storm damage I assume. Newton TH was accessible. Only saw one trail runner in the 2 1/2 hours I was out there. Combined FL 10, Lief Erickson, Waterline and Wildwood for a perfect 5 mile loop. Trails are fine, just bits of blow down here and there. Not much snow left.
