Elinor Klapp-Phipps Park in Tallahassee has the distinction of being a park inside city limits where you won’t feel a touch of city. With hiking, mountain biking, and equestrian trails on sloping hillsides along Lake Jackson, it’s primarily a dense forest shaded by ancient pines, oaks, and magnolia trees, with alluvial streams cutting through the sand and clay to add a touch of burble in the background. The Phipps Park Hiking Trail is the focus of this week’s Hike-A-Week for Florida Hikes! subscribers … here’s a peek at why this is a don’t-miss trail system extending 7.4 miles.
