Haunted trails

Published 2:31 pm Monday, October 2, 2017

October is the perfect time of year for hiking in the Foothills, that is, if you dare … (cue the evil laughter). You never know what type of ghostly apparition you might come across, like this one on a local trail captured by photographer Vince Verrecchio. Maybe you shouldn’t go out alone; friends make exercise more bearable, and they can corroborate your ghostly tall tales. With your friends, family or coworkers, check out the Polk Fit, Fresh and Friendly fitness challenge (polkfit.com) going on this month for activities, hikes, walks, and runs designed for all fitness levels and ages. Another resource for trail enthusiasts in the Foothills is PolkTrails.org, which lists area trail descriptions, maps, photos and more.
