Miles Hiked: 3.40 Miles  Elapsed Time: 1 hour, 20 minutes


Route    Isabel Harte > Winding Snake > Burkett park > Suzanne's Trail > Lanky Lackey > park road (ENE) to Isabel Harte > Isabel Harte      3.4 miles

Temps in low 30's to start, upper 30's at end.  Sunny light and variable wind.

An easy stroll along familiar trails.  Saw a small herd of deer, quite a few birds and four javalinas.  Never got close enough to get a good photo of the javalinas since they maintained a good distance between us and them.  The herd of deer were spotted in the dried lake bed as we prepared to hike - they disappeared in the brush just as we started to hike.  Lots of birds including a Ruby Crowned Kinglet were seen.

Trails are dry and easy to traverse.  Not much to report so will close.


Shade available at Isabel Harte.

Water, shade, info kiosk and dry toilets available at Burkett park.
