Battleground Lake Trails Hike

Hike Distance: 6.6 miles      Yearly Hike Distance: 860.5 miles

Elevation Gain: 906 feet      Yearly Elevation Gain: 105499 feet

Definitely brutally hot out and thought I’d go to a park that has a lake!   I first hiked around the lake and it was cooler although still very warm. I bumped into a very nice woman and we had a nice talk.

The lake is fairly busy, but not compared to a weekend, and very noisy with lots of children and families.   Basically, everybody is out for the summer having fun!   I sure do miss when I was a kid and went out to the lake, and went swimming and boating and fishing.   Those were the days!

After going around the upper Lake Trail I then cut over to the outer trail that goes around the entire park.   I stopped to have quite a bit to drink and also take some electrolytes, so that I don’t get dehydrated or have heat issues.   I must say that it is incredibly hot even under the tree canopy!  I can tell that I’m really going to be enjoying my ride home in the air conditioning and being at home with the heat pump 🙂

Still a very nice day and I was very well prepared for the heat!
