This year the hubby wants to test out more trails around St. Louis. While I’m always down for a nice trail run and hike, they aren’t always in the cards when training for a race. Long runs take priority during the weekend.
Today we tested out Castlewood State Park. It’s about a 25 minute drive from St. Louis city.
On an unseasonably warm day like today, we expected a decent crowed. Parking be as a bit of a nightmare, but we eventually found a spot and were on our way.
I’ll also note the parking lot had a series of portapotties which was extremely convienent.
We took the River Scene Trail, a 3.2 mile scenic loop, with beautiful scenery.
Alex and I ran, jogged and walked, making it through in just under an hour. The views are extremely nice, and there are several wide and flat areas perfect for picking up the pace.
