Aj C. on Emilie Ruecker Wildlife Refuge
Nice little loop. low impact hike.
Nice hike. Not very difficult but long enough for some exercise if you do the full 4 miles or so. The only thing I would warn people about is the inconsiderate dog owners who refuse to leash their dogs.
I saw several people there today some of who had dogs with them. About half of them had their dogs unleashed. You know the situation, your walking with your family and LEASHED dog, when around the corner comes an unleashed dog that of course is going to come right up to your dog sniffing, then the barking starts, then the idiot owner says" she's friendly, don't worry." Meanwhile my wife nervous, kids are a little scared and I'm pissed off. Some people think the rules apply to them i guess. Thanks for screwing up an otherwise great afternoon.
This was a great area to take my 4 1/2 year old. The terrain was very easy to maneuver.
The only complaint is I thought there weren't enough trail markers. the ground was still snow covered in a lot of parts and I had a few times where I thought we may have gotten off the trail.
