Leg 1 -  Burkett Park > Burkett Trail > Potts Creek Trail > Playground Trail > Bell's Point

Leg 2 -  Bell's Point > Playground Trail (N) > park service road (NE) > Trailhead to Trailhead (S) > Burkett Trail > Burkett Park

Temp started at 49, ended at 70, Sunny, light wind.

A very nice hike along mostly groomed trails. The cooler air was at the start of the hike but by the end, it was comfortably warm.

I saw a 6 point buck, doe and fawn that survived last week's hunt.  A javelina with two very small piglets was but they were trotting away from us so no photo.  Not many birds spotted besides a few Mockingbirds and Sparrows.

Uneventful but pleasant hike.


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