Turkey Trot Trek

It turned out to be a great day to work off those Thanksgiving calories, and 22 folks (and one pooch) took advantage of the opportunity. The weather cooperated and the trail had been prepared the day before. So off we went!

Terry explained the route we would be taking

The entire two miles of the trail had been prepared the day before. Leaves and especially acorns were blown clear, brambles and overgrowth were cut back (Thank you, volunteers!)

It was a great day and a pleasant hike. We had some new folks as well as returnees, and all appeared to have a good time. See you at the next hike!

Scheduled hike events are in this blog (see "Hikes and Special Events" in the right column) and in the Shelton Herald, as well as email notification if you have previously signed up. You may request email notification via

  1. Nice photos Rich. There were a lot of other folks out enjoying the trails at Shelton Lakes also. It was a good day for Fall hiking.
