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.
