It has been a long winter – great for skiers, but not so great for trail running. If you are heading up Baldy from the M, the snow pack begins just above the top of the M. It will take some time to melt off.
If you are looking for an alternative place to do some trail running, the trails out at Lewis and Clark Caverns State Park are now, finally, in good running shape. The park experienced an unusually wet and cold winter. Typically, I can run out there all winter long without much trouble from snow and ice. This year, from beginning of February till the end of March, the conditions were very snowy, icy and wet. They even experienced some flooding and erosion, but all is well now.
New Favorite Stuff Page
Notice up top, there is a new menu entry called Favorite Stuff. It lists some of my favorite things for training and running the Ridge. Just cause it works for me, does not mean it will work for you, but it is a start if you are looking for tips. Remember to experiment, test and verify.
