Location: Eisenhower Park

Difficulty:  Solitude:
Miles Hiked: 3.80 Miles  Elapsed Time: 1 hour, 37 minutes


After hiking Friedrich Wilderness Park in the morning, my friend and I headed over to Eisenhower Park to get some additional mileage in.  Like Friedrich, Eisenhower is small, but it has some challenging hills.  You can also go up to the top of a wooden observation tower and get a nice overview of the park and surrounding area.

Unfortunately, my friend was feeling very well, so we cut it short and didn't hike all of the trails.

2013 was an incredibly ambitious year for me hiking-wise, so it was nice to end the year with this "short but sweet" hike.  I want to thank Austin Explorer for creating this awesome website for everyone to log their hikes.  To the hiking community, hike on!
