Hiking at Leonard Springs

Monday, April 7th, 2008

Sarah and I went hiking at Leonard Springs Park yesterday. We were planning on doing a longer hike but we were having a lazy day and decided a shorter one would be better. It was a beautiful 70-degree day, sunny with a nice breeze. I believe the trail is about a mile, not very long but pretty good for a city park. We took Rob (the dog) and he really enjoyed it, except for a metal platform/staircase at the beginning.

There are a few different falls there, quite full from all the rain we’ve had, and the water made quite a noise as it cascaded down the hillsides.

We almost got stuck there, as the parking lot filled up and people had parked on either side of the entrance by the time we left. We were just barely able to squeeze between the cars and get out.

    I love when they leave trails as natural as possible – that little foot bridge is pretty nice. As for the metal bridge, I think I’d be a little nervous about that one, too – it looks like something from a horror movie. Nice pictures throughout.
