Lake Junaluska

3.76 miles; 276 ft. total elevation gain; Waynesville, NC This walk had been on my radar for a while now, so I finally made the trip out to Waynesville to visit. It definitely qualifies as an “Easy Walk,” in that it’s pretty flat, and all either paved or sidewalks, and even has a shortcut you […]

Hominy Creek Greenway

| April 6, 2020

.85 miles; Asheville, NC Pretty little trail that follows Hominy Creek. It was only .85-mile long, but the walk to and from was “a bit” longer than that. I totaled 7-1/2 miles on this stroll. Walking through West Asheville is always fun. There are some pretty interesting shops and restaurants, including this one, one of […]

Two Asheville Greenways

| March 30, 2020

2.1 miles; Asheville, NC Today was a lovely long walk to two very nice greenway trails in Asheville: Reed Creek Greenway and Glenn’s Creek Greenway. They basically meet at the North Carolina Botanical Gardens, which were, of course, closed. Also, a bonus stroll through a technically closed Weaver Park. As I’ve mentioned before, I walk […]

2019 STL#2: Harkness Memorial SP

| March 28, 2019

1.5 miles; Waterford, CT I have only been here once, at that was for the annual dinner of the Connecticut Forest and Park Association. So I didn’t really know what to expect. I dunno. While I appreciate the fact that, after their deaths, the original owners of this place donated the property to the state, […]

Grandfather’s Field

| November 7, 2018

1.1 miles; Sherborn, MA This is a Trustees of the Reservation property which is actually a part of the Rocky Narrows Reservation in Sherborn. It’s a very beautiful spot to from which to view the Charles River, as there are no buildings on either bank for a long stretch. This was also part of my […]
