So, the MoCo trails are supposed to open at Noon today after being closed all week (DO NOT get me started on this!). Even though rain is gone I want to stay out of that jurisdiction this weekend. Sooooooo, we will hit some state trails which have been open all week! This weeks choice…drum roll, please… Lower Greenway North to infinity! We will park at the trail head on Seneca Road (right off River across the creek from Poole’s …Store where Jill has the Wednesday Evening Group meet). The Greenway is a state trail from there up to the North end of Seneca Creek State Park where it becomes part of the MoCo trail system (raise your hand if you knew that?). It will be muddy and it will be wet – in other words, perfect conditions! However, there will be a big round bright object in the sky. Don’t look directly at it. It is called the sun. Enjoy!
Location: Seneca Road Greenway Trail Head (plenty of parking along side of road)
