Took a birthday hike yesterday with the family (minus one). We decided on a mile loop in the Rock Lot Preserve that crossed Joan's Trail (named after Joan Ensor) and the Duncan Munro trail. We entered from Seventy Acre Road and set out to find the Great Oak, a feature of this trail. It is off the trail a bit and a sight to behold. Henry surmised that the tree was likely 200 years old or more, and probably existed at the time of Redding's founding. It was buggy as heck so we didn't take a leisurely stroll. Very easy for kids, and a nice walk if not for the bugs.
