About Hiking at Southeast Metropolitan Park
It was a muddy muddy day when I decided to hike Southeast Metropolitan Park. In all the places I’ve hiked, I’ve never ignored ‘trail closed’ signs after a rain. The signs are there for a reason, and now I know why. The hike was much more difficult with less traction, and caused greater wear on the trail than a dry hike would have. It takes a lot of work to maintain a trail, so I won’t be ignoring these types of signs after a heavy rain anymore. The route itself has plenty of ups and downs, and twists through multiple ecosystems. My favorite area was the lake about halfway in. With a lone fishing dock and plenty of birds and turtles, the scene was like something out of a tabletop book. If you’re looking for a quick workout, hit the trail at Southeast Metropolitan Park. Bonus points for checking out the Bird Blind.
