Lying just southeast of Clinton in DeWitt County, Weldon Springs State Park is a 550-acre park for all seasons. Weldon Springs' recreational agenda is among the most comprehensive in the state park system, offering recreational opportunities year-round. During the milder seasons, you are invited to fish, boat, picnic, camp, hike, and view wildlife. Or, you might want to pitch horseshoes at the park's tournament-quality horseshoe pits. When the snow flies, hardier outdoors persons not only continue many of the warmer weather pursuits, but add sledding and tobogganing on a one-eighth mile hill, ice fishing and cross-country skiing to the itinerary of their visit.

Nice trip around the lake there. Good trail! Wooded and shaded with nice views. Mostly mud trail with several stairs. Saw fish, turtles, geese, and dragonflies. Lots of hop on and off the trail for campers from their sites. Makes me want to camp there! Lots of fishing, several kayaks. I also did the Old Farm Trail section. I would rate easy with a few slight hills. It is grassland area. Saw deer, rabbits, butterflies, dragonflies, birds and old wooden barns. lots of milkweed, I would expect more butterflies soon! Over all/both hikes, Fitbit showed 4 miles and 24 floors. Bathrooms were clean.

Good backpacking sites.
