Hello all! If you've been keeping up with me during my travels of Ruston, you've probably realized a few things about me. It's hard to overlook my love of shopping, running and coffee. These are arguably three of my favorite things, and they are by no means in short supply here in Ruston, La.

As I've mentioned before, I despise treadmills. I feel like I've been running an hour when only five measly minutes have passed. However, time seems to fly when I'm running outdoors, and I've quickly found that Ruston has some great options for outdoor exercise. Most recently I've discovered Huckleberry Trails, a park and nature area complete with great running trails that go through a beautiful woodsy area. The trails offer a variety of paths and a few inclines to keep your run engaging and challenging. There are signs posted all along the trail pointing you in the direction of the various paths you can take, which was reassuring and helpful to me the first time I went exploring out there.
The park area has a playground, clean bathrooms, water fountains and a nice pavilion with picnic tables. There are also these cool metal structures in the park and around the trails that gives it a little more character. I was honestly impressed with how clean and well kept the park was. I was also a little curious as to why there weren't more people at this great spot. While it is somewhat tucked away back in a neighborhood, it's a perfect place to take the family for some time outdoors on a summer evening. If you are in or around the Ruston area, you should definitely visit!
