Solo Sunday 13

It's been a while since I've been out on Wildwood north of Germantown Road (since there aren't many loops up there), so I decided to venture up there for a shorter solo run (while Ann spent the weekend in Hood River for her birthday). My plan was to start at the Waterline trailhead off of Skyline Blvd, but there was nowhere to park.

"REDO H2O" on the way up Waterline
So I circled back and parked at the Germantown trailhead of Wildwood, ran down to Waterline, and up it to Skyline and then back to Wildwood and out all the way to the end at Newberry before turning around back to the car.

A new one for me-- Waterline trailhead at Skyline Blvd
That northern section of Wildwood was amazing. Recently groomed, free of leaves, mud puddles, virtually spotless. There were a few sections of ice in the shade, but it wasn't slick at all. There were lots of people out, especially with dogs, enjoying the rare November sun and peerless blue sky. Heavenly!

Hello old friend, BPA
Original route (mileage is the same):
  • Waterline to WW (24)-- .42
  • WW (24) to end (30.16)-- 6.16 (6.58 total)
  • And back (13.16 total)
