Lets see if we can squeeze in a hike during the raindrops.   

Leita Thompson is a beautiful park with just 170 feet of elevation.  The trails are made of soft, small gravel and plenty wide to walk side by side with very little roots and rocks. 

----Plan is to hike 2 laps but we will be passing through the parking lot after lap 1 so you can drop off if you need to.  The pace is on the faster side of D2.  Not a stroll but fast enough for a good workout.              

More info about the park: o/2009/06/leita- thompson-memorial- park.html

There are no bathrooms, but there are three sets of porta potties throughout the park.

There are 3 parking areas, the first is the dog park, the 2nd is the arts center/overflow parking lot and the third is the walking trails where you will see the green roofed pavillion.   We are starting the hike at the overflow lot.  If you happen to turn into the lot with the green roofed pavillion there is a small shaded gravel road on your right as soon as you turn off Woodstock Road.
