After work today, I walked along the shoreline of Emma Long Metropolitan Park and then beat the heat by going for a sunset swim. The summertime people were out in full force.

Turkey Creek Trail – Hike
This trail can be found on the right just as you round a bend and cross over a narrow bridge on City Park Road. The trailhead parking is before the ranger booth for Emma Long Metropolitan Park. The hike consists of several creek crossings, and a climb to the top of a small ridge. The area is currently leash free, so expect to encounter lots of wet dogs roaming the trail. I tried – and mostly succeeded – to keep out of the creek while hopping from rock to rock. I got to see the sunset from the ridge top and then had a dark hike while trying to find my way out. I didn’t get eaten by monsters, so all is good. 🙂
Turkey Creek Trail – Trail Map
After work today, I rushed over to Emma Long Metropolitan Park with the intention to complete the Turkey Creek Trail hike before it got too dark. I goofed around with my camera a little too much and completed my nearly 3 mile hike in the dark. It was a fun evening!
