Today I had a hair cut scheduled at 115 pm. Which made the idea of “18 miles, hilly, trail preferably” a little tough to come up with.
I decided to look at the map and directions for the southern end of the Zoar Valley Trail. I attempted to drive it the other year and failed.
I start looking at the map and corresponding directions.
First mistake! Which actually made the entire route easy to follow!
|Leave Schoenbrunn and follow SR 39 to University Drive (TR 312)|
|Turn right onto University Drive and proceed east|
It’s Route 259, not Route 39-which IS near by. This should make it easier for me to get on the correct starting point!
Here’s the map:
Awful isn’t it?
I just went over the roads turn by turn with Google Earth. There is only one section, which says “Turn right and head east on old railroad bed”. I hope I can find this. My alternative would be just to continue down State Route 39 and head north on Pleasant Valley Road.
The Actual Run: I did it! I was able to navigate the road and find my way to the “trail section” which starts at State Route 416.
Last time I was there
Longer blog post, with lots of pictures coming next. I’m pretty happy, as I have now connected all the parts of the Zoar Valley Trail. I look forward to running the whole trail soon!
