Betty and Wilbur Davis State Park – Tuesday, September 4, 2018

Report by Linda Pearce – A group of twenty-seven hikers gathered at Betty and Wilbur Davis State Park on Sept. 4th. We were glad to welcome five new people to our outing this morning. Even though it was quite warm and humid, most of us walked the entire Andy’s Trail, a 3+ mile loop of woods and fields that goes around the perimeter of the park. From the knoll in front of the West View cottages, we had a beautiful vista to enjoy. Also, the meadow at this location was full of colorful fall wildflowers – goldenrod, black-eyed Susans and purple asters – with numerous butterflies flitting around. Following the hike, many of us stayed to eat lunch at the Sunset Pavilion. Several people commented on what a fabulous park this is, and some not knowing it existed. This 229-acre park is like a “hidden gem” in our midst.  Photo Credits: Tag & row 1 photos by Betsy O’Brien and row 2 photos by Scott Fielder.
