Off the beaten path at Lake Park – Walking Fools

Entrance to the park is on the west side of N. Dale Mabry Hwy about half a mile south of Van Dyke Rd. We will meet at 8:15 am at the parking area. After entering the park turn right and continue straight to the end of the road. There is a $2 fee per or Hillsborough County Park Pass. 

This is not just an exercise hike. There will be no paced loops like you did with Elizabeth on April 15. We will explore the mostly shaded, double-wide trails in the park that few people have seen. There are short cuts back to the parking area for those who may not want to go the whole distance.

    Marty here, yech good -- could we finish by 10:10? How do I qualify as a fool? Is there a test at the end?

    • Mike N.

      Even if we start promptly at 8:15, a 6-mile hike at 2.5 miles an hour (leisurely) will take about 2.4 hours, so we would finish about 10:40.

    Hello. How long will this hike last? Unfortunately, forgot I have a meeting at 10a, but maybe I can change the time :-)

    April 27, 2013

    • Mike N.

      Don't count on being finished by 10. We won't be rushing it.
