Battleground Lake State Park & Chelatchi Prairie Railroad Trail Hike

Hike Distance: 7.2 miles      Yearly Hike Distance: 731.4 miles

Elevation Gain: 786 feet      Yearly Elevation Gain: 96782 feet

A hot and humid day that took the energy out of me.  I tried staying hydrated but didn’t do a great job of it.  I ended up drinking quite a bit of fluids when I got home!

It was more crowded than usual for a weekday but the trail system was empty.  I don’t blame people for being around the lake where it was a bit cooler.  Most of the people were fishing from the shore but there were plenty of boats on the lake.

The foliage was beautiful and I felt enveloped by the forest!  I ended up trimming a few branches that were draped across the trail.  A very lovely day to be outside and in the fresh air.
