Another nice day calls for another hike! Jo and I headed out To French Creek State Park today – I had been on these trails a few times before – the map for the park is pretty much useless as the actual trails do not match up in any way to the trails on the map – the only thing in common are some of the trail names. It seems like they are working to correct this and I saw several trail markers and newer painted blazes on the trees that I hadn’t seen the last time I was here.
You can rent kayaks, canoes and even paddleboards seasonally here – this was where I tried paddle boarding for the 1st time – it was perfect because the lake isn’t so huge that you feel lost and it isn’t so small that you get bored – also no motorized boats are aloud so you don’t have to worry about the wake tipping you over – just nice flat water filled with beautiful lily pads that look so out of place here! It seriously makes you feel like you are in an exotic country, not south eastern PA! 🙂
We decided to take the long loop that goes around the lake – it is a fairly flat 3 mile hike. It is hunting season now and I know right around the lake no hunting is aloud so we were safe there. There were a lot of people out enjoying the day – we got to see a canoe race where the kids looked like they were having a blast! It is definitely nice to see so many people out enjoying nature!
Here are a few pictures from this quick hike!
