Trail shared by Peter Kolf

Typical up and down, with sharp rocks and oak leaves, through a large, unspoiled, wilderness tract.

Description

The trail starting at Route 7 is straight up, with a creek running next to it. As you reach the top, the road noise fades away, and you find yourself in an unspoiled wilderness. In the middle of the run, you'll find a deep valley that looks like something from the Lord of the Rings. As you come back to civilization, entering Tarrywile Park, you encounter signs of civilization in old cars and fellow runners.
