Beautiful park with some beautiful trails. Sadie's been nursing a sore leg so I had to leave her home for this trip. When she saw me putting on my running shoes and putting together my gear she tried her hardest to hide the limp and prove that she was okay for a long Saturday outing. It almost worked. It's lonely on the trails without her.
My plan was to run trail #25 - a 25-mile loop through the park. It was well marked near the trailhead but after a few miles the markings either disappeared or I was running so fast that I missed them. I ended up running for a couple hours lost. Not too lost, the river was always just over the way, but lost enough on the network of unmarked trails to make it fun.
I bought a map of the park and will attempt the loop another time. The map suggests that trail #25 exists in its entirety.
