monthly hike at ft. ben

Ft. Ben offers lots of great trails that range from easy to rugged. This park is nice because it's so close to downtown, yet feels so far away from the city!

For this hike, we'll meet at the trail head of the Fall Creek trail, which is near the parking lot by Delaware Lake. This hike will be on the the Fall Creek/Camp Creek loop, which takes about an hour. This trail is moderately rugged as there are stairs and hills. We'll stop for breaks along the way and let any swimmers enjoy Duck Pond.












If it is pouring rain, consider this event to be canceled. Entrance to the park is $5/vehicle. 2013 annual pass for DNR State Parks & Reservoirs. They are only $40 and are good from Jan 1st - Dec 31st.

Trail map is available online.

    It was a great hike today, lots of people out watching the birds, fishing, and hiking. Great weather.

    We had perfect weather today. The spring flowers were out so it made for a pretty walk. We had a really nice large group so no matter what speed your dog walks there was someone else to walk with you. I hope everyone was able to join us (I guess there was a waiting list), the more the merrier!

    The weather was perfect and the trails were mostly dry! We had a large pack today and all the dogs seemed to get along. Some dogs went swimming and many dogs stayed after for social/play time.

      The spring wildflowers graced us with their presence too. It was beautiful!

    We were in a lot of mud for our March hike. If it's still wet and muddy in April, we will plan on meeting at the same place, but hike the paved trail instead.
