Out     -   Burkett Park > Burkett Trail > Potts Creek > Playground > Bell's Point > Playground > Flintstone > 5 Points Junction     3.7 miles

Return -   5 Points Junction > Turkey Creek > Potts Creek (W) > West Potts Creek > Roller Coaster > WS to LL Connector > Burkett Park   4.6 miles

Temp Started at 77, ended at 93.  Sunny with a few clouds and light SW breeze.

All trails were easy to see and traverse.  There were more people on the trails than I am used to seeing (due to today being Saturday).  Javalinas, deer and some birds were out but once again, the birds were not as numerous as I had expected them to be.  It was an easy, but uneventful, hike.
