I have heard Colonel Francis Beatty Park is a little gem located southeast of Charlotte.
I went to check out the parK today. It's a very nice park, trail are great. Very clean,

one of the better parks. Not many folks knows about this park. Has a fishing pier , nice play ground. nice place to take chikdren and your dog.

Please join me for a brisk walk through woods, yes you can stroll around the lake.
This is a5 - 7 mile loop. We will do that and then if anyone that wants extra mileage I would like to go on a shorter track and add another 3 miles or so. This is a hiking and biking track but this time of year there are far fewer bikers and hikers.

This hike is relatively easy, with no elevation change, some paved, some gravel, and some natural trails. We will do about 5- 7 miles. The trails through the woods were for bikes only before they opened to hiking, so they are for the most part narrow. If bikes are on the trails they will come from the opposite direction and the thing is to step to the right and let them pass on the left.
Dogs on 6 foot leash welcome!
