L.L. Stub Stewart State Park - September 29, 2014

Hollie's Point of View and Bumping Knots Loop
7 Miles

We wanted a hike close to home and one that we could take the dogs on so we chose Stub Stewart State Park because we had heard of the many trails there and wanted to check them out.
The weather was cloudy and raining and someone didn't want to go.

Once there though he was ready to hike, even with the threat of rain.

The trail starts out on this paved portion and then becomes dirt and with the rain it was a muddy mess.  You do need to watch out for horses and bikes because this is a multi-use trail.  Along with the horses comes the piles of horse manure.  The trails are obviously used by many horses so watch where you step.  

Once the rain started the hike became not so fun.  We finished and had hopes of views of some sort as their were viewpoints noted on the map.  We must have missed them because we saw nothing but mud.  This is not a trail I would recommend on foot.  I think it is best suited for mountain biking.  There is a nice information center with helpful volunteers and probably great for city kids to learn about wildlife and the forest.
