Rocky Ridge Horse Trail at Enid Lake 2018

I previously hiked the Rocky Ridge Horse Trail on the north side of Enid Lake, Mississippi in March 2017. The trail was in poor shape then, and this time (October 2018) it was in even worse condition.


There is a section in the middle of the trail where it passes a small pond where the dam around the culvert has almost completely washed out. That section is completely impassible for horses, and only careful hikers can traverse around. I wouldn't be surprised if it soon was impassible on foot. Not helping that was a group of large downed trees uphill (on the west side) of that pond that also make the trail impassible for horses.

Blendon Woods Metro Park

Image
Blendon Woods Metro Park is a 118-acre park on the northeastern side of the Columbus, Ohio metropolitan area. The park is mostly forested, along with some grassy areas, a disc golf course, playground, picnic areas, small lake, and other areas.


There are several short, interconnected hiking trails, and I made a nearly 2-mile loop on a fall afternoon.

All of these trails were in very good condition, see a good bit of use, were fairly wide, and were easy to hike.

The park has great views of downtown, the river, and Windsor, Ontario. There are also some wetlands, fields, and a small lighthouse in the park.
