13 miles on the Hopewell Trail

We got started across the Hopewell trail on Lake Whitney at 9 am. We hiked from Kimbell Bend towards Lakeside Village. We ran into a trail runner about two miles in. He was from nearby and running about a 7.5 trip. We got a little snack on top of an old cellar at about 5 miles.

We passed through Plowman Creek Park and noticed their signs were not the right distance in each direction, but about right overall distance.

We continued on and got another snack as we crossed another creek.

We continued on to the end of the actual trail, 11.75 miles across without the half mile detour for higher water. Then we went on up the hill to the radio tower for a lookout.

13 miles in 5.5 hours. Good times.
