I wanted to try out a new pair of hiking boots close to home, so I headed to Tall Pines. At first I felt a little goofy wearing boots on a paved trail, but I’m glad I had them for the weather once I got into the wooded area. There were quite a few stretches that had snow, slush, ice, puddles, and/or mud. The green trail provides a nice walk, even with a few hilly sections and crossing the creek several times over foot bridges. There are a few places along the route where you are near houses or can see the road—but lots of peaceful places too.
