I’ve lived very near Hines Drive for 14 years. The dog and I will occasionally ramble through a few nature areas nearest the house, and I’ve bicycled some lengths of the 18-mile-long path, but never hoofed it. Over the course of 3 days this month, I hiked the majority of Hines Park in order to fully appreciate the flora and fauna.

Living creatures definitely dominate the first half, but you’ll see more signs of human intervention in the second half.

I advise clicking on the first photo, which will then fill the screen. View successive photos by clicking the arrows on the right. Come walk with me!
