Monkey Mountain and Honey Creek

Spent the day with some people from the Adventure Club exploring Monkey Mountain and Honey Creek Conservation Areas north of St Joe.  We had over 6 hours on some hilly trails so I think we were all pretty well pooped by the end of the day.  The trails at both areas were mostly wide paths where trees were cleared as a fire break, or through grassy areas on top of the hills.  Honey Creek appeared to be popular with the equestrian crowd so some trails there were muddy and rocky ruts.  It wasn’t my ideal hiking experience but there were some nice views from the hilltops, lots of wildflowers blooming, and good company.
