We take so much for granted living in the Northland. Our lake, hills, forests, outdoor adventures are boundless. And to many this gem is unknown, the Chester Park trail system.

I would've never known of this great hiking trail had I not started a new friendship with someone who lived right next to this beautiful area. The park hides the fact that you are right in town, the river covers the sounds of the city.

What I like about it is the easy walkways that anyone with walking issues can still enjoy. A walk that takes you away from the city that we live in. I can see myself taking my lunch there, enjoying the green of nature and the babbling of a creek.

Step out of your normal and don't forget what a great area the Northland is.
