Forks of the River: My Favorite Trails

I enjoy reading Life in Every Limb — the author covers a wide range of topics, but a couple I always find interesting are her walks and the cemeteries she visits. This post has plenty of images to enjoy.

Life in Every Limb

Bear with me, y’all because there are going to be a LOT of pictures in this post.

Emily and I have walked on the Forks of the River trails five times, because there is a lot of territory to cover and also because we didn’t plan very well for the task of completing all the trails with the least repetition.  But I can’t say I’m sorry, because we’ve had the opportunity to explore the place in Spring, Summer, and Fall.

There are wildflowers throughout the Urban Wilderness, but Forks of the River takes the prize no matter the season.

This area can also not be matched for its variety.  You can walk through meadows or in the woods.  Some paths are flat, but along the river bluff there are challenging climbs.
