Loblolly Trail

Superintendent's Cabin, Lost River State Park
One of the things I remember about staying in Lost River State Park as a child is walking on the Loblolly Trail. For one thing, it was fun to say! And it was very close to the cabin where we spent a week. So I was delighted to find it again.

I did not walk very far on it even though it is not a long hike, because Frank's knee was hurting. It was neat to see it though.

By the way, loblolly is a type of pine tree.


  1. My Hubs used to have problems with his knees too. He ended up getting a knee replacement. I hope Frank's knee feels better soon.

  2. That's a word I haven't heard before!

  3. I like that cabin, great post and images. Have a happy weekend!

  4. Always fun to take a 'trip' back and share memories with new friends.

  5. Looks like a fun place to stay [as well as say].

  6. I never knew that about Loblolly! Yes, it is a fun word too!

    Hope the knee improves soon ...

    All the best Jan

    1. When I say the knee - I mean Franks knee ...

      All the best Jan

  7. That looks like an interesting place to walk. I like the name too!
