Someone told me that the Wissahickon Valley Park Trail that I can get on in Manayunk would take me up to Valley Green Inn where I could return from Forbidden Drive, so I tried it. Turns out that person was wrong or I just didn't find a trail that connected. As I got further away from Manayunk, I kept checking the map but couldn't figure out where to turn off. Eventually there was a three-way fork in the road and I took the wrong fork. When I reached a sign that said Welcome to Montgomery County I turned around because otherwise I would have ended up in Conshohocken.
I'm going to have to keep trying to figure out these trails as I extend my weekend distances. I have a steady 5K route at this point for weekdays, but my weekend runs will need to continue to expand so that I can reach 26.1 miles in November.
|Just keep running.|
