With our usual trails in such poor shape, we’re going to switch things up this week. On Sunday, February 16 at 8:00 a.m., meet on Reservoir Road in Katonah (behind the Katonah Art Museum, See Google Map) and run a 6-mile out-and-back course to Maple Ave, Jay Street to Upper Hook Road. Turn around is at 121 for a total of about 6 miles. With luck the roads will be plowed and, while technically not a trail, it should be a nicer run than on the trails this week.

Hope to see you on Sunday.

February 9, Michigan Road Lot

Click to enlarge

Click to enlarge

On Sunday, February 9 at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation Michigan Road Lot when we run something that looks like the Red Plus Loop. We’ll begin with the Red/Yellow trail and follow Red to Raven Rocks. Since conditions on the trails are rather challenging, you have options for returning via Yellow, Green, Red/Green or completing the entire loop. I was out this morning and can attest that Yellow can be easily run, Red/Green is a challenge, and the LL trail to the Overlook can be described as double black diamond. If you enjoyed last week’s Looper Bowl, you’re going to love this run.

Hope to see you on Sunday.

February 2, Looper Bowl Sunday

This Sunday, February 2 at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Meadow Parking Lot and rise to the challenge of the Third Annual Looper Bowl. Follow the loop course, water crossings, mud flats, sand hills and all. Relive the excitement of the Leatherman’s Loop but with the possibility of snow. For those wanting to keep their feet dry, there are optional detours to avoid all the water crossings but, sorry, not the mud flats. You’ll probably want to bring an extra pair of shoes to change into after the run—might be a little, er, muddy (unless, of course, it’s frozen over).

Next week we’ll be meeting at the Ward Pound Ridge Trailside Museum.

Hope to see you there this Sunday.

January 26, Lewisboro Town Park

This Sunday, January 26 at 8:00 a.m, bundle up and meet at the Lewisboro Town Park when we run a classic course to Kimberly Bridge and back via the DH and Br trails. We’ll run the course in a clockwise direction this time and, with the cold weather, the Br trail should be firm (read: frozen solid like a skating rink). Note the dotted line after Kimberly Bridge that seems to go “off-map.” I discovered a spur trail that connects DH and Br which should be passable for those who prefer exploring. The course as marked is 5.25 miles with options for making it shorter. Download a PDF here ››

Next week we’ll meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation Meadow Parking Lot when we run the third annual Looper Bowl.

Hope to see you out there this Sunday.

This Sunday, January 19 at 8:00 a.m, meet at Mountain Lakes Park (201 Hawley Road, North Salem, NY) when we try out some new trails that the staff at Mountain Lakes has recently cut in when we run the Outer OS loop. Mark Vincent has found an extension of the OS trail which opens up areas of the park that most of you have never run before. We’ll also pass through the Yurt Village, around Spruce Lake (conditions permitting) and up the Red trail which will be new for most of you. Meet at the trailhead to Lookout Point if the main gate is open.

Next week we’ll meet at a new location when Tony Godino shows us the Zofnass Family Preserve.

Hope to see you out there this Sunday.

This Sunday, January 12 at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Reservation Michigan Road lot when we follow a course from Michigan Road to Kimberly Bridge. This time, we’re going to run the course against the arrows, starting on Red-Yellow, going down the Blue slope and passing the Meadow lot before returning to Michigan Road.

Next week we’ll meet at Mountain Lakes Park for another try of the Outer OS loop that will be new to most of you.

Hope to see you out there this Sunday.

Start the new year off right with this classic run. On Sunday, January 5 at 8:00 a.m., meet at the Ward Pound Ridge reservation Michigan Road Lot when we run Rob’s Recovery Run—six miles of trails in the southern portion of the park that take us past the overlook, Leatherman’s Cave, Bear Rock Petroglyph, and Dancing Rock. Optional out and back to Rob’s Ruin for those who want to add a little more distance.

Next week, we’ll be back at the Michigan Road Lot again but this time we’ll head north to Kimberly Bridge.

Hope to see you out there this Sunday.

December 29, Trailside Museum

This Sunday, December 29 at 8:00 a.m, meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Trailside Museum when we run the last run of the year—the Museum, Michigan, Raven and Blue Loop. This course will start us over Fox Hill which is always an eye-opener, then take us to Michigan Road then the Green trail to the southern portion of the park. You’ll get a view from Raven Rocks before entering the “waterfall” section of the RT trail to one of the lowest portions of the park before starting the climb back up. Keep an eye open at intersection 13 because you don’t want to end up at Pell Hill, but follow Blue down the hill and return to the Museum. While it may only be 5.6 miles, this is a fun and challenging run. Download PDF map ››

Saturday, December 28 at 8:00 a.m. Anyone interested in a Saturday run, meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Trailside museum at 8:00 a.m. to run the Museum to Blue Route. I won’t be there but you can run it in either direction—either start going up Fox Hill or finish coming down it. Either way the trails are spectacular right now so this is another chance you have to run with the group. Just bring your own map.

Hope to see you out there this Week.

This Sunday, December 22 at 8:00 a.m, meet at the Ward Pound Ridge Meadow Parking lot when we run the Meadow, Michigan, to Museum Loop. We’ll head south from the meadow over Fox Hill to Michigan Road. Depending on the trail conditions, we can decide whether to make the run a 5-mile or 6.15-mile loop. We’re expecting some warmer temperatures before Sunday so we’ll see how much of the snow melts off before Sunday. Download PDF map ››
