Ten miles at the end of the park

After our day off running on Friday, we took Saturday as a rest day and wanted a "short" run to stretch our legs on Sunday. We usually try to cram in miles by running the trailheads closest to us, so we were excited to get to the quieter, wilder, far north of Forest Park.

Leif Erikson Trail ends at Germantown, so there aren't many loops up there. I like to combine Newton and Firelane 10 with BPA, FL 12 and FL 15 for a figure-eight. To make it closer to 10 miles, I threw in an out-and-back to the end of Wildwood at Newberry Rd.
