Majik Forest Hike – 1 January 2017

Majik Forest HikeWhat beter way to start a new year than taking a walk in your own neighbourhood. I am priviledged to stay close to Majik Forest and put on my hiking shoes and took a brisk walk from where I stay to Majik Forest and back — see map below. Since this is my first post of 2017, I wish all my readers a great 2017 and may you hiking shoes/boots take you on interesting paths and trails.

On my way I past the ruin shown in the picture above. Google decided that it needed some enhancement and must say it did a fairly good job at it.  Here is the original photo that was taken,
If you are a bird lover then there is ample to keep you occupied and you can relax next to the dam having a bite to eat or follow the various trails that run through the forest, just be on the lookout for the mountain bike riders. Some more photos to give you some idea.

Distance: 4.97km
YTD 2017 distance: 4.97km

Did you do any hikes to start your 2017, I would love to hear what hikes you did in the comments below and also interested on whether you are planning any long hikes during 2017.

Walk: Majik Forest and back

I was off sick for the past week so weekend and Saturday hiking had to take a back seat.  Having sort of recovered I took a short 5km walk from my home down to Majik Forest and back.  If you stay in the area and have not visited Majik Forest then do yourself the favour and spend some time there.  It is Majik 🙂

I also started to use Wikiloc to track and record the route that I walk/hike. It is an ideal tool if and when you want to share a route with somebody else or finding a new route to walk/hike.  Here is the route for my walk:
