Shotgun Creek BLM Park
March 18, 1979
After a short drive up the beautiful Mohawk Valley, a group of 15 left the
Shotgun Creek Recreation Area on the four-mile trail around the Park.
There were many varied stands of second growth forest, much fern, early flowers
and brilliant green moss which was especially beautiful after the sun came out.
The weather was varied—some light rain, overcast and some brief periods of sun-shine.
The trail offers some pretty views of the river, old virgin timber stumps, woodsy
trail plus some cut-over areas.
The hike makes an interesting Sunday afternoon exercise experience through a very
scenic area a relatively short distance from the city.
Shotgun, trekkers were
Everett & Ruth Hughes,
Dorothy & Clarence Scherer.
