Hey Tree Slappers, how ’bout them Caps? And how ’bout those Muddy Shoes Trail Dogs. True champions as well! OK, lets focus…dur, dur, dur….we got some work to do on Saturday. Nothing too bad. Our ‘goal’, no pun intended, is to crank out an easy 12 miles on the 10 Mile Creek Trail. Wait, I know what yer thinking. 12 miles on a 10 mile trail?!? Nah, the trail is actually 12 miles of single track bliss. Beautiful trail for those th…at have never been on it. Rolling hills, deep forests, awesome lake views. might be a tad bit warm and humid so hydrate today.
Here are the details:
Location: 21614 Clarksburg Rd, Boyds, MD 20841 39.187816,-77.3109983 (Park on shoulder opposite lake. DO NOT PARK IN THE BOAT RAMP PARKING!)
Course: Out’n’Back on Ten Mile Creek and Cool Springs Trails
Distance: 12 miles
* Another opportunity to do a workday this Sunday, on behalf of all of us mud runners. We need to volunteer to support our awesome trail system. Sign up on the Montgomery County Parks volunteers page www.mcp.samaritan.com. I understand Bonnie Bell will be crew leader, meeting at Wightman and Brink Roads intersection in the upper County to complete work on a new part of the Seneca Creek Greenway Trail. Time 9am to 1pm. They supply tools, workgloves, etc. At moment I’m planning to be there.

* Check out the new Run Location list in the Files section that Robin put together. Gets you where you wanna be for getting and off of trails in MoCo. Contact us if there are any you want to add.
