Running Trails

Union Canal Towpath Trail

This body of mine defiantly feels better after running on a trail surface versus on a road. So I've been scoping out all the trails I can find near my house. Wow, I live in a great area for trails - I didn't know there were so many - all within 7 to 12 miles from my house.

Angelia Creek Trail
Exeter Scenic River Trail - parking along Gibraltar Road, 1.2 mile north of Rt. 724
Horseshoe Trail - crosses Maple Grove Rd a mile from my house
Nolde Forest - a number of different trails in this state park
Thun Trail - I like to start at Brentwood Park - you can go east or west from there, plus there's a few other starting spots around Reading.
Union Canal Towpath Trail - Starting at either Gring's Mill or Red Bridge.

All are great walking and/or running trails, expect the Horseshoe Trail and Nolde Forest are suited best for walking/hiking, not as good for running.
