Opt Outside 2018

November 24, 2018
Stockton Creek Trail
Total distance walked: 3.10 miles

After eating all of the good food and special treats on Thanksgiving Day,  my sister, niece and I opted outdoors that weekend by taking a short hike along the Stockton Creek Trail in Mariposa County.

A long-awaited rain fell just a few days prior, so we were uncertain what condition we’d find the trail.  We prepared for mud, however, the dirt was hard-packed and the only obstacles were the opaque puddles.

We walked up to the water—a 440 acre-foot reservoir on Stockton Creek owned by MPUD—and back.

This quick hike was the perfect length and made for a good ending to the Thanksgiving weekend festivities.
