Traipsing on the trails in Timberlane Ravine Park


Yesterday, the boy and I decided on doing something a little different than the boring neighborhood, so we went searching for a trail!   Ok, so maybe searching is exaggerating a little.. We went to the park I pass everyday on my way to work – Timberlane Ravine Park.

wp-1457914698577.jpgIt looked quant, and having the potential for trails, you can see the entrance behind my son – doing the tree pose.  Its a subtle little park, with a small lot that would hold only a few cars – right off the road.wp-1457914762786.jpgIt was your average mountain bike trail, lots of twists and turns where a running trail would have just been a straight line.  This would have killed my GPS’s accuracy – even if it hadn’t started our run with

“GPS Signal.. Lost.”

Oh well.. We focused on just enjoying the scenery and mocking ourselves for how “slow” we were going according to the GPS.  My brilliant phone is convinced we went one mile in 20 minutes!  Based on the fact we weren’t walking – I disagree, but I suppose the technology has “proof” – I don’t.

wp-1457914842224.jpgIts obviously not a beginners course to ride through as there were a couple of places a bike (and us, on foot) had to go over a log, and under a fallen tree right away.  I just can’t get the visualization of the rider being knocked of the bike as he jumped the log.  Fortunately, being on foot – it was much less challenging!

There were little bridges over the creeks.

Giant Mouse trap that a skeletal hand in the woods pointed us to..

It was a nice trail.. Though I have to admit I don’t understand the mouse trap… But it was very, very cool.

We’ll run it again.

About

I run, because I am a runner. Having realized that I have always "been a runner" - even when I went years with out running, I am learning how it has integrated itself in all aspects of my life. When I started running in highschool, my perspective on life changed. Funny that I didn't realize how much it had affected it until just recently.

    Awesome that your son likes running and exploring with you. And I’m strongly in favor of anyone grooming someone for trail running. Good man!

      Thanks for stopping by!

      My son not only enjoys running, he is “kind” enough to point out to me if we have let to many days go by.. Its good motivation! He has me checking our new home area, to find all of the trails.. More pictures and stories to come!
