New Bridge over Big Creek at Girdled Road Reservation

One of our favorite parks is the Girdled Road Reservation. The hike from Radcliffe Road to Girdled Road is about 2.6 miles, give or take (the last stretch involves a lot of steps!). The round trip is then about 5.2 miles. Lake MetroParks has just finished building a suspension foot bridge linking the Skok Meadow property, entered from Rt. 608, to the Girdled Road Reservation.

The Girdled Road Reservation has magnificent mature forests, ponds, Big Creek itself, some small cataracts, many smaller creeks, and lots of ups and downs. In the spring it has magnificent displays of wildflowers. We love it in all seasons.
