Park Mid-Section - Burkett Park to 5 Points Junction Loop

Walking Stick Minus a Leg
I didn't notice the missing leg until I looked at the photo. Nonetheless, he seemed to be moving pretty well using the other five legs.

Leg 1 -  Burkett park > Burkett Trail > Potts Creek > Playground > Bell's Point > Playground (N) > Flintstone > 5 Points Junction     3.6 miles

Leg 2 -  5 Points Junction > Turkey Creek > Potts Creek (SW) > West Potts Creek > Roller Coaster > WS to LL Connector > Burkett park   4.4 miles

Temp started at 52, ended at 76.  Sunny with slight SW breeze.

Easy hike along easy to traverse trails.  Not much activity today - two white tail deer and a few birds were spotted.  One of the birds was a yellow shafted flicker so that was nice.  I saw a Walking Stick on the trail and only saw it because it moved across a rock (photo attached).  Otherwise, it was a quiet, peaceful and very ordinary hike in the park.
