Black Forest Regional Park

10 miles 1:15:38 7:34 average per mile
9:30 am) mid 80's sunny
Took previous 2 days off due to heat and smoke. Still hot and
smokey today but needed to get a run in. So we went north
east to Black Forest to run. Only my second time on these trails.
They are non technical but lots of up and downs. I did an out
and back but got lost on the way back and added about 3 miles
to my run. B was waiting for me when I got back. She was not
really concerned as she figured I was just lost and not dead.

My kids were there this morning doing a little soccer camp. It's a little cooler and less smokey.

Hey Brad
Have you ran section 16 in Black Forest? Just a little bit east of Regional Park. Nice 4 mile loop, small rolling hills and shaded!

Hi Don!
Funny you mention that. Just yesterday B and I ran there. I did enjoy running here. Thanks for mentioning it.

One more in the Forest is Fox Run - off Roller Coaster Rd - take I25 North to Baptist, East to Roller Coaster and then South 1/10th of a mile. 3 mile loop with some decent elevation gain (more than Section 16). Lots of shade there too.
