The National Park Service at Lake Meredith National Recreational Area has started a new trail project at the south end of the lake. They opened the first phase of five last week. It’s a two mile long rough trail that starts at the Harbor Bay boat ramp and climbs about halfway up the side of canyon and then winds north and east along the wall. It’s a nice hike, not so strenuous that an old guy like me has too much trouble. I’ll probably not go in the middle of a hot afternoon again though. It was about 32°C and there isn’t much shade. I could hear birds in the brush but could only see a couple of them.
Check out the galleries for photos of more birds, the lake, other flora and fauna of Hutchinson County.
