My visit

I have been to Hawthorn Park many times. This visit has to be one of my favorite due to the time of the year. The day was cloudy and cool, but that is my perfect hiking weather. The bugs aren't out yet either! My iPhone registered 2.7 miles for me. 

This visit I stayed on the trails that encircle the main lake. There are several red decks on this lake for people to picnic or fish off of. There was one person fishing during my visit. The trails are either gravel or paved. They are in really good condition. If you haven't been, I encourage you to check it out!
