Mini family hike to Blue Oak Trail
This weekend I wanted to take the time to spend a beautiful memory with my two toddlers. We went to Millerton Lake State Recreation Area: South Shore Area. It is roughly 20 miles from Fresno. There was an entrance fee of ten dollars.
It was the prefect day to spend quality time with families and friends. The recreation was full of people and the water level was moderately high. I water was perfect for the girls to swim. They didn’t want to get out. They had so much fun.
After their swim, we did a short hike to Blue Oak trail. According to All Trails.com, Blue Oak trail is roughly 6.3 miles out and back. Now hiking with toddlers, there is a limit for them to hike until they wanted to be held. We hiked a total of 1/2 a mile round trip to the trail head.
The trail was decent for them to hike on. There were a few ditches we had to watch out for and the trail is right along the lake with a sheer drop in certain areas. The wild flowers were beautiful. My girls can’t help it, but to hand picked them. The sunset was also amazing.
In any event, I hope one day I would complete this trail with a few girls of mine and review this wonderful trail that is 20 minutes from town. I think it would be fun to enjoy the view of the lake before the temperature rises to the nineties.
