Waggin' Trail

This was the second of our guided hikes following one of the Shelton Trails Marathon listed hikes. Called the "Dog Paw and Flower Path", it incorporated the Dog Paw Path, the Flower Path, and parts of the Rec path and the Paugussett Trail for a total of 1.6 miles.

We gathered at the Shelton Dog Park, where Terry (and Biscuit) outlined the hike plan

Starting up the Dog Paw Path

Crossing the power lines from the Rec Path to the Flower Path

Learning to use a map
We stopped at Eklund Garden for a break and to enjoy the native plants

At Hope Lake, Biscuit cooled off his paws

Not so for the kids...they had to settle for just looking

The serenity of the lake was a welcome break

Near the end of the hike

 It was a great day for a hike, the heat wave had not yet hit us, and we enjoyed the diversity of this route. Those participating in the Shelton Trails Marathon chalked up another length of track toward their goal. Hope to see you on the next hike!
