Starbucks Morning Walk

Haven't done this one for awhile. Time to relax into fall with a Starbucks chai or pumpkin spice and take a stroll in the woods.

We'll start and end at the Starbucks on Snowden River Pkwy (the one attached to Three Brothers, near the Hunan restaurant).

The loop is about 1.8 miles, easy, pleasant and shaded. We'll start with a short walk down the quiet street, then walk the paved trail to Lake Elkhorn, walk along the lake for a little bit, head back through the woods to Hopewell Park, and then up the street for coffee.

Coffee afterwards is, of course, optional.


Park in the Starbucks parking lot, but at the far end where we can gather on the grass and away from the in-and-out traffic.

Use the Google map above for directions to the Starbucks at 7090 Deepage Drive in Columbia.

You can also check out the Trail Map for this walk if you'd like a preview.

    Darn! Wish I could do this one, but I have a work call at 11. Maybe I'll repeat this one later in the week. A pumpkin spice latte is sounding pretty good . . .

    Beautiful day for a beautiful walk with canine and human friends. Jade enjoyed herself even though she didn't have the route memorized which interfered with her new desire to lead.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
