Battleground Lake State Park & Chelatchie Prairie Railroad Trail Hike

Hike Distance: 7.5 miles      Yearly Hike Distance: 1625.1 miles

Elevation Gain: 849 feet      Yearly Elevation Gain: 213449 feet

I’ve done this hike many times before and each time I mix up the trails to make it different.  I hiked on the Chelatchie Prairie Railroad Trail first.  I was so fortunate to meet Susie, and her dog, while on the railroad trail, and we had a very nice conversation!  It’s always nice to meet other friendly people while hiking!

After completing the Chelatchie Prairie trail I hiked around Battleground Lake on the outer loop.  To make things more interesting I then ascended up to the rim trail and followed it clockwise around the lake.  The last leg of my hike was to track along the Battleground Lake shoreline, where I stopped to take plenty of pictures.

Such a nice time on this wonderful local hike. 🙂
