Battleground Lake State Park & Chelatchie Prairie Railroad Trail Hike

Hike Distance: 7.8 miles       Yearly Hike Distance: 485.5 miles

Elevation Gain: 941 feet      Yearly Elevation Gain: 54244 feet

Cloudy and cool with some sprinkles. The lake was very crowded with people fishing! However, nobody on the entire trail system! There was a large amount of heavy equipment in the lot and on the lakeshore, presumably as they’re installing a new dock. It was very disturbing to watch the private landowner next to the chelatchie Prairie railroad Trail log out or thin large trees on his lot.
