Out     Burkett park > Burkett > East Potts Creek > Armadillo (N) > Playground > Bell's Point > Playground > Flintstone > 5 Points Junction    3.6 miles

Return  5 Points Junction > Turkey Creek > Armadillo (W) > West Potts Creek > Roller Coaster > Suzanne's Trail > Burkett park    4.3 miles

Temps in the low 60's, overcast and light breeze.

Dry trails that are easy to traverse.  Lots of birds out but nothing unusual except for the number of American Kestrels I'm seeing.  I've seen more already than I normally do in a year. 

The majority of the trails are a mixture of dirt and rock; because of the dry weather, the soil seems loose so watch your footing.


Water, shade, info kiosk and dry toilets available at Burkett Park.
