Mother Nature redirection, a few months again this portion of the trail started to slide down the cliff. After a few good rain storms two trees have been up rooted and have taken the trail with them. There were a number of runners out on the trail today. They must be getting prep for BKT50K . I didn't see any turtles today but I came across on deer running along the trail.
A beautiful sunrise (Drivers call this "sun glare")Here's one for Mike (fitfromfat) ...the camera is hanging from a tree branch.
There is 88 steps going down and because I was alone and have some time to kill I counted them again going up 1,088. Here's another trail that will be rerouted soon, it will be interesting to see how long the tree holds up.
Are you tired of running the towpath? Are you looking for a challenging trail to concur? Park at Boston Store and go North on the Buckeye Trail. You can travel as far as the Oaks Grove Trail in Brecksville.
I ended up running up the buckeye trail just past Boston Store (across Riverview Rd) to the ODOT service parking lot (Just before you head into Blue Hen Falls). I turn around then head back. Once I got back to initiation hill, I thought about running to Pine Lane Parking Lot, but I decided to run back up initiation hill to see if I could beat my time. I ran a 4:09 this time. I'll run with the group Sunday AM (BT50K Trail Run) after that I'll have 37 miles for the week.
