Last weekend was one of our most active yet! We had a total of 25 people attend at least one of the two trips. The new faces and beautiful summer weather certainly didn’t hurt to make this an awesome summer weekend.
Last Saturday, a group of about 10 people met at my apartment and we took a leisurely bike ride to St. Patrick’s park. The ride was abut 7 miles to the park and was mostly along the St. Joe river, which provided some nice views. We met up with a few others at the park and hiked along some of the trails for a few hours. The trails at St. Patrick’s park are very beautiful and are worth a daytrip if you have not already been there.
The next day, a group met up at Potato Creek State Park, just south of town, for some hiking and trail running. Potato Creek is a particularly interesting park because it was once farmland and has been restored for both wildlife and recreation purposes. I always find it amazing to see how fast land can bounce back. During our visit, we hiked and/or ran about 6 miles of trail. Although a small group of us did get lost, after a wrong turn on to the mountain bike trails, everyone had a great time. I’m sure Potato Creek will see the Adventure Club again soon!
