On Friday evening we headed for one of the sources of Chester Creek – Russian Jack Spring and then up to Muldoon to watch the creek wrap through the subdivisions and forest up there. On Saturday, we walked back from Russian Jack to Valley of the Moon. Last of the stories are now posted on https://soundcloud.com/guysidewalk . […]

I have a tale to add to the trail. We were talking with a biker on the bridge over the creek just before the bridge over Northern Lights, when a moose that was on the side of trail decided to come check us out. It was a juvenile and it seemed to be a mixture […]

I have collected around 20 sound bites of people sharing their favorite places and memories on the trail. The Chester Creek Trail continues to amaze me with the resources it provides. Today I heard stories of commuting, prayer, and feeding the homeless. I met my third or fourth person who was experiencing the trail for the […]

“High” lights from this walk include walking over the bridge at Bunker, under Arctic in the tunnel, and into one of the Chester Creek’s best parks: Valley of the Moon. As usual, dog walkers, families and people out to get some fresh air spread throughout the park. Collecting stories is more difficult with a larger […]

First day on the trail – what a milieu. I love this section of the trail for the wide variety of activities and people enjoying the trail. Over the week, many people have shared that the lagoon and the view towards the mountains is their favorite spot on the trail, if not the city. Remote […]
