Sunday’s Hiking Adventure : Lover’s Leap Park

Posted by Susan on May 4, 2009

Yesterday morning we got up early and put on our hiking boots , grabbed a granola bar and headed out , we hoped before the rain started . It was not the most beautiful day , sort of cold and damp out , but the sights were still specatcular !

We first took a trail the lead past some old ruins of homes owned by a woman who at one time owned all 160 acres of what is now the park. It lead all the way up to some cliffs that over looked Lake Waramaug . It was a pretty great walk , so quiet and peaceful.

The second trail we took was much more of a challenge . It was an uphill , climb up to the cliffs on the opposite side of the trail we took the first time . The views from the top were amazing !

We hiked for a good 2 hours . I love these hikes because I always do my cardio on machines. Doing it outside is so much more of a challenge . The hills, the different kinds of terrain , and just being outdoors not matter what the weather is so nice for a change.

When we got home it we were tired ( a good tired ) and hungry ! The rain held off until an hour after we got home . We will definately do these trails again on a sunny day . It was beautiful yesterday in the cloudy , overcast , on a sunny day it must be incredible !
Next weekend we are revisiting the place we hiked last week because my mother in law will be with us and that place was not as much of a climb . But we are already researching our next hike together for the Sunday after next .

I am so excited to have rediscovered my love of hiking and even more excited that my husband is looking forward to our Sunday outtings . I figure it is great exercise , plus it is a nice way to start the week .
