131 – Hammond Lake

A trail likely blazed by locals heading to their favorite fishing spot along the shore of Hammond Lake, one of the small lakes making up the Rock Island Ponds complex off of Highway SR-28, turned out to be a beautiful hike as the guys fished from kayaks.

Even though a small lake of only 24.2 acres, I managed to log nearly three miles of hiking time along the trail, through an orchard, along the county road and along the edge of the bordering golf course.

The blossoms in the orchard were absolutely beautiful!
