Welcome back to Day 10 of Walktober!

    I did grocery shopping, did weekly cleaning, and watching my 17 month old granddaughter.

    I use the Oakland town trail all the time. It’s great for a 5K run.

  4. Gayle

    This is one of my favorites! It will be my go-to when I’m too old to climb mountain trails!

  5. Jen Sober

    Its not GC local, but certainly a short 30 min drive away. I love running the rail trail in Confluence right now. It is so amazing along the river with all the trees so beautiful and the trail covered in Fall leaves. It even had that Autumn Leaf smell today.

    • Dee

      Great place to meet friends for a quick walk.

  6. Kathy Skipper

    We have walked both trails numerous times. We just discovered the Fort Alice trail a few years ago.

  7. Lacy Coffren

    I’m interested in this trail for the view and the history. The picture on the Garrett Trails website… Wow!
