Two laps around Murphy Candler lake.  We will meet at the parking lot noted in the directions below, then will circle the lake counter-clockwise.  The trail begins on a sidewalk, then takes us through a lakeside picnic area before looping through woods and finishing along a wide trail that takes us back to the parking area. You will cross seven bridges along the way, probably see ducks and geese and maybe even a heron, hawk or owl.  We will go at a moderate pace.
A maximum of 3 friendly dogs are permitted on this hike.  They must be on a leash at all times and you must pick up after your pets per park rules.

Required Items to Bring:

hiking boots or shoes with good traction
appropriate clothing for the weather
emergency rain gear
