Riding through the woods

It is Friday and Fridays are for fun. Last weekend I got on my bike and took a ride through Lilydale Regional Park. I never get tired of the trails through the woods or the eagles’s nests along pickerel lake. There are also herons, ducks, swans, turtles, and lots of beaver and songbirds.

Right now the woods are full of wild violets. I also found some marsh marigolds blooming and of course the bald eagles hanging out near their nests. They often get their pictures taken. The park is a photographer’s paradise and wonderful for biking, hiking, fishing, and picnics too.

The best times to ride through the woods are on weekdays in the early afternoon or late morning when there is less noise and traffic.
