Please join L.L. Bean Mansfield on Saturday 4/6 for a fun trail run in F. Gilbert State Forest. If you’ve never tried trail running this will be a good introduction to the sport. Our run will be a rather easy one over well established trails and woodland fire roads. We’ll start our outing at 10AM in the circular parking area at the end of High Rock Road in F. Gilbert Hills State Forest (see directions below). We’ll plan on a double loop with the first leg about 2 miles and the second loop between 2 and 3 miles. This will give people the choice of doing the short run then extending for a longer run if they’re interested.
