Waukewan Highlands

We're back - from bouts of the stomach flu, celebrating birthdays and holidays, hosting parties and egg hunts, and the regular craziness of life.

Our weekly walks, exploring new places in the area, have commenced!

Yesterday we visited Waukewan Highlands Community Park. It is located off of Rt 106 in Meredith and is a great place for little ones to explore.

There are a few different trails you can take. The mailbox
was empty of trail guides, but there is a great interpretative guide you can download and print off from here. The guide is geared perfectly for little hikers.

We took the white trail down to the pond. It was all down hill and an easy stroll. Even my 24 month old could handle it easily. The little pond was perfect for throwing sticks, rocks, and pine cones into.

We easily spent 15- 20 minutes here....with each minute attempting to get that much closer to the water.

We then proceeded around Hart Pond and up the red trail. It is uphill the whole way, the Owl ( 43 months) did fine, but Sassy Sis (24 months) asked to be carried. The trail was covered with dead leaves, which made it a bit slippery.

Luckily big brother carried our pack so I could carry sis.

Again, we're so lucky to have so many hiking areas to enjoy with the little ones right here in the Lakes Region! Happy Trails!
