The hike will be starting from the parking lot of Audubon Center Parking Lot. From the parking lot we will head NE towards the trail head and start the hike with a slight uphill warm up. This hike consists of several hills combined with sections of fairly leveled ground. There is one hill that that quick gain for about 1/8 of a mile, but will be done at a gradual pace. Our goal is to get to the hidden Debs pond at top of the hill. Here is where we will rest for a bit, enjoy the serenity of the lake, a snack and get ready to head back. This park is a beautiful reprieve from urban life just a few minutes from downtown.
REQUIRED: 1.5 to 2 liters of water (or 3 to 4 20oz bottles) and a small snack.
RECOMMENDED: Comfortable shoes with grip, a hat, sun block, a hat and a hiking pole/stick.
DOG-FRIENDLY?: Yes, but must be kept on a leash.

MY FRIEND SAID I CAN DO THIS HIKE, I SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO IT, RIGHT?
We take your safety quite seriously, and would not like for you to attend a hike you’re not ready for. You know your body and hiking experience better than your friends. Whether you are a first-timer or an experienced hiker, please read our hike details page as the hike may not suite your experience level. We have a better experience if every hike has hikers of the intended level.
