So I saw mentioned somewhere a pair of parks in Clementon that I hadn’t checked out before – Silver Lake Park and Rowand Lake Wildlife Management Area. So I left for Scouts a bit early one night and stopped by each of them to check them out.
The first was Silver Lake. From the map, the park looked a decent size, but the trail could hardly have been shorter – 0.15 miles. Walking back doubled that. It’s okay though, sometimes I hike them so that you don’t have to.
However, the view was pretty, and this is supposed to be a nice spot to fish. So while I wouldn’t recommend hiking it, The Pres and I will be back here to fish at some point.
Nearby: Rowands Pond WMA is right around the corner, and was our next stop…
Pretty view. Reportedly a nice place to fish.
Not really much of a trail here.
