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.

    we had great weather and it was so nice to hike these trails with NO MUD! T was particularly excited and had fun tearing it up with his friends! we still had a nice crowd despite several backing out at the last minute or just not showing up at all.

    The meetup was great as usual, but I don't think Schnitzel was in a walking mood today. By the time we made it to the 1/2 mile point we were so far behind it would've been dinner time when we finished! We turned around and went back to the start.

      we wondered what happened to you but then we saw George running with his boxer, Roxie and he said you two turned around. Hope she is doing okay today.

      Please join us again next time Megan. I'm sure your pup would do fine. We walk at an easy pace and take a few rest breaks.

    Great weather today and a great group! Maybe too humid for Ginger today which I think slowed her down more than normal but we eventually caught up with the pack.
