Morning Hike at Twin Creek - 10 miles - Moderate to Brisk Pace - 3 mph

** Park at the Chamberlain Rd. Parking lot for this hike **

Twin Creek MetroPark Twin Creek MetroPark

This hike will be strenuous.  We start out easy on the Purple loop and then hit the hills, zig-zagging our way through the park to insure you get the full 10 miles!  There are some challenging hills on this hike - both ascents and descents - trekking poles are HIGHLY recommended for this hike.  We will take a short break at the Eby Rd. Shelter about 2/3 of the way through the hike - bring lunch or a snack and plenty of water.  We will see it all on this hike - prairie and meadow, floodplain, Dogwood Pond, ridge top walking, the Hopewell Earthworks, and Camp Hook - the old Boy Scout Camp.  This will be a great FITNESS hike!

This outstanding natural area contains steep, wooded ravines containing mature forest with a diverse understory plant life, extensive areas of second growth forest, floodplain forest, several large managed grasslands, a large scenic pond, and the beautiful Twin Creek. In addition, the MetroPark contains a winding prehistoric Indian mound and a scenic hilltop vista. The MetroPark is linked by the wooded Twin Creek Corridor that connects it to Germantown MetroPark to the north.

    Now THAT was an AWESOME HIKE!! We hiked some HILLS today, flats, woods, mud, fields, and everything. Someone left a cooler full of snacks, fruit and fresh water for us at the half way point, and many others helped themselves to our stuff! Glad I could help people out! Anyway, we had fun, and Terri and went on for another 2 miles to make just under 12 miles for the day, averaging 3.4 miles per hour pace.......AWESOME! Great company today....
