8-10M. Trail Run at Patapsco Park (Avalon Area)

The best season for trail running! Quiet trails, bright skies, crisp air and the crunch of leaves. 1-1/2 hour-ish run on the trails at Patapsco River State at an easy-going but efficient pace. Please join us only if you've done some trail running, can do that distance, and don't mind adding an extra 1/2 mile here or there (I'll have extra copies of the trail map but there are a few unmarked turns)...the run is one big loop that combines four trails.

When we ran this last time we shared ideas about mixing the route up a bit, adding more miles, etc. I'm game so bring your thoughts and we'll run what the group wants.

Let's meet by the restrooms in the big parking lot by the pavilions and playground (at the end of the park entrance road after the pay station off Rt. 1, take a left at the T junction/stop sign, and you'll see the big parking lot just ahead on your right). I'll plan to post this run a few more Sundays this winter as well.

    Apologies for leading folk astray with the gate. A great run - I feel more like I just had a workout than just a run.

    Paul and I are at the gate on Levering which is locked. Trying to figure out what to do.

    I plan to be there at 9:30 and bringing a friend.

    Everyone...I will not be able to be there at 8:15. My ankle & calf injuries are flaring up this morning and after a short run on the road just now there is no way for me to run on muddy trails safely. Meet the main group at 9:30 or explore on your own. Happy trails

    Is anyone starting at 9:30 doing 10 miles?

    January 7, 2014

    • Suzanne

      I'm game for 10 tomorrow, a few places we can add a few miles.

    My cell's[masked] if anyone's having trouble finding the meetup spot...thx Paul for the heads up about the entrance. We'll prob. Split into groups. I'm recovering from a wrist fracture so will be taking things more gently than usual!

    How technical are the trails, particularly the downhills? I'm dealing with a knee thing that makes the rocky downhills rather difficult/painful.

      Evan, should be single track with rocks and roots. Some areas smoothed out for mtn biking. This is my first time with the group. I hope I can keep up.

      January 10, 2014

    • Evan

      Thanks Kevin. I actually figured out that I know those trails quite well. I used to work by Gun Rd. For some reason I was thinking this was a different part of Patapsco, but I am most likely out with knee pain after todays run.

      January 11, 2014

  • Carrie

    Thanks Paul. I will leave early b/c I probably will get lost

    January 11, 2014

  • Paul

    As an FYI. I went to Patapsco this afternoon. The main entrance is closed until 1/20, so you need to enter via Levering Road - which is a bit further south than the South St. entrance. There is detour signs, so you shouldn't get lost if you're unfamiliar with the park.

    If anyone wants to run a few extra miles..I will be starting at 8:15 and then circling back to meet the larger group @ 9:30

  • Carrie

    Hi Matt. I plan to park in the main lot by the pavilions/restrooms at Avalon. I drive a blue impala. Glad to have some company for my extra miles.
