Where: Reasonover Creek Trail, DuPont State Recreational Forest
Meet: Columbus, Food Lion parking area, east side, @ 8:30
5.3-miles, moderate; trail type – loop
Hikers will experience the natural beauty of DuPont’s Fawn Lake, Lake Julia, and Reasonover Creek on this trek!Following Fawn Lake Road past the small lake, the trail will lead hikers over an abandoned airstrip where we will follow Camp Summit Road to Lake Julia for stunning views of the lake and a snack. This one-hundred-acre man-made lake is surrounded by beautiful rocky cliffs. After taking in the sights at the lake, we’ll pick up the Reasonover Creek Trail. Along this portion of trail, there are a few places that we’ll have to cross Reasonover Creek – there may be the opportunity to rock-hop, but be prepared to get your feet wet or take the time to take off and put on your boots! Hopefully, we’ll have the opportunity to see spring wildflowers along the way…maybe even a bird or two!
