Becks and Tarik have become pretty great buddies at school and since both like science and animals and exploring we decided to check out the Lion Trail. Ever since we moved here after learning where we live long time locals have told us about the Lion Trail.
Legend has it that it is called the Lion Trail because it passes by the Lion cage at the Sunset Zoo. Beckham and I have looked for the entrance to this trail a few times and never found it. Recently though, I finally found the entrance to this once thought mythical trail.
Before going I did a little web research and learned while there are Cheetahs and Tigers in the zoo, there are no lions which certainly leaves the legend questionable.

This is a railroad bridge that has been converted to jogging trail through town.
The trail has tons of branches off the main line, I expect we will explore every last inch over in the coming years.
