Temple 10K
08/21/10

We parked in the Swimming Pool Parking Lot and walked up hill. We took the trail to the left and followed it. Then we left the park and did 2/3 of the walk in residential area. We re-entered the park and did a loop around it to complete the 10K. There is a really nice pavilion at the south end of the loop and would make a better start point. There are bathrooms nearby and lots of parking. Most of the residential area was shaded (we started walking at 7:15) and most of the loop in the park has no shade. The loop in the Park is 2 miles according to the National Recreational Trail database that I found online.

Nice wide paved trail here.


Went to gravel and had some washed out spots.
