Leg 1 -  Playground parking area > Tasajilla Flats > Nature Trail > Lanky Lackey > WS to LL Connector > Burkett Park      3.9 miles

Leg 2 -  Burkett Park > Burkett Trail > Potts Trail > West Potts Creek > Roller Coaster > WS to LL Connector > Burkett Park   3.9 miles

Temps started at 57, ended at 68.  SW winds at 10-15mph shifting to NW 20-25mph. Partly cloudy.

A pleasant but uneventful hike along dry and easy to see and traverse trails.  Warmer weather for a few days so there were more peopl on the trails than usual.  NO animals of any kind were spotted.  I could hear birds singing but the vast majority of them were staying very low.  Nothing else to report.


Water, shade, info kiosk, toilets and a bicycle repair station on Playground parking area.

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