Monocacy Nature Trail Bethlehem
Today we hiked the Monocacy Nature Trail from Illicks Mill along the creek to Burnside Plantation, through Historic Bethlehem to the Lehigh River, and then through some pretty neighborhoods in Bethlehem back to the Mill. Although today was cooler than earlier in the week, it was still a warm, muggy day. We made a refreshing stop for some ice cream in Bethlehem midway through the hike.
Walking along the Monocacy. There was lots of poison ivy on these trails. I took a long shower using Fels-Naptha when I got home, I will know tomorrow if that was enough of a preventative...
Some of the trail was along railroad tracks.
