Fast-paced 2/6 mile afternoon hike at Prairie Oaks

We will meet at the Whispering Oaks Picnic Area.  We will hike a couple of trails for a total of about 6 miles. We probably will do the coneflower trail loop which is about 2.2 miles, then we are back to our cars for the 2-mile (2.2 miles) hikers. We then will redo the small loop of the coneflower trail and will continue on an anticlockwise loop using on the Darby Creek greenway trail/Lakeview trails/River rock trail which should be about 3.6 miles. I will give a test after the hike on which trails we went :-).

Pace: fast, around[masked] mile/hour.

We will leave 5-10 minutes after the start time so please be on time.

Directions:  Main park entrance (3225 Plain City-Georgesville Road):

From I-270, take I-70 west to Plain City-Georgesville Road/S.R. 142 exit and go north on Route 142 about 0.8 miles. Entrance is on the right. Go in and drive to the Whispering Oaks Picnic Area (which is at the end of the road, approx 0.7 miles).

    Thanks all for a nice hike ... it was sunny for a change ..... snow was not packed at places so a bit more challenging. We did a bit less than 5 miles.
