Sesqui is a 1400 acre oasis only 3 miles from downtown Columbia. It’s a lovely park featuring a waterfall, 4 hiking trails, kayaks, canoes, pedal boats, picnic tables, camp sites. I walked the nature trail then the Sandhill hiking trails twice to reach 5 miles. They are both easy. The sandhill trail meanders around the 30 acre lake. I saw a few bikers but not many for a Saturday morning. There were quite a few people fishing or picnicking. Warning signs for social distancing were spread all around the park. The children play area and the water craft rentals were closed due to Covid. This park is close to me so I drive there often. It is always a calming, rejuvenating experience.
