Monday Trail Fun Run #5 – Moreau State Park
I your heart rate is not 165 bpm plus in the first half mile, you’re not running! We’ll start out on the west ridge yellow trail with a short and relatively flat warm up, then it’s straight up for a half mile or so. We’ll continue on WR trail past intersections 10 and 6, then peel off on the orange cottage park (CP) trail at intersections 17 as we continue up and down, then to the white connector trail, then to the blue East Ridge (ER) trail, then to the Ridge Run (RR) trail to stop at the overlook. From there, we’ll continue on RR to the green baker (BK) trail and its downhill back the parking lot. Lots of rocks and roots here, giving us some of the most technical trail running in the area.
