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. 2014 annual pass for DNR State Parks & Reservoirs are available. They are only $40 and are good from Jan 1st - Dec 31st.

Trail map is available online.

    We will still be meeting by Delaware Lake, but due to the excessive snow and rain, the Fall Creek trail is too muddy for hiking. Therefore, we'll be sticking to the paved Harrison Trace trail and we'll be covering about 3 miles.

    As always, I encourage you to bring enough water for yourself and your dog(s) and doggie bags. You are expected to pick up after your dog. Hiking boots would also be good to wear.

    PS Don't forget that we're scheduled to hike on MLK Jr day (Jan 20). I hope the trails are drier by then.
