We hiked Rock Park! It was a perfect Sunday afternoon activity and the park is only few blocks from home. The weather was beautiful – a sunny 52 with really low humidity – and we had absolutely nothing to do all afternoon.
The trail is about a 1.4 mile loop with an elevation gain of 370 feet. Not a long hike with a meager elevation gain but for 2 rather sedentary people it was a fantastic start.
I was pretty pleased, I didn’t trip, fall or experience any sharp chest pains…seriously, I’m so out of shape and unhealthy, that was a real concern. The views were great & the cardio outdoors was a great change of pace.Technically the parks department prohibits climbing the infamous butte (but I see people up there all the time). We didn’t climb the beast this trip. There were a few families headed up, because it’s not recommended you’ve got to get very physical with the boulder. We have no doubt we’d be able to climb it; but we were both wearing our every-day jeans and splitting or ripping those wasn’t an option.Become Healthier – Both of us Enjoy my Hobbies – Jake Climb a 14er – Jess (yes this isn’t a 14er but I gotta start somewhere!)
