A New TrailI walked a new trail yesterday and it was amazing! It’s located about 30 minutes from where I live and I never knew about it until yesterday. I was born and raised in Dorchester County and it’s amazing that I’m still learning new things about it. This trail wasn’t any different. It’s located on a National Wildlife Refuge so you know the scenery was breathtaking! I definitely took a few pictures on the walk so you all can see how beautiful my county is.

As it turns out, there are quite a few walking trails within the National Wildlife Refuge; the shortest is 1/3 of a mile and the longest is 6 miles. There are also a few biking trails for when the cooler weather hits. I walked the 1/3 mile trail yesterday since it was my first time there. I had company, too, and I had so much fun!

It felt like it was 200 degrees yesterday (I really hope Fall is just around the corner) so I seriously worked up a sweat. My company and I also walked up one of the observation areas and saw a heron and a cotton mouth snake (ewww).

When it was all said and done, I earned a FitBit bonus of 595 calories!

Okay, here are some photos from the trail. Enjoy!

I had so much fun on this trail and I can’t wait to go back! It’s so much closer to me, which means I can afford to drive there often. There is a fee to access the 1/3 mile and 1/2 mile trail but I’m going to purchase the annual pass for $12 – no excuses! I can take the whole family out there to walk and enjoy the sights.

Do you have any trails you love to walk?
