I had a great run on the Seaton Trail. It was a bit muddy at times, but it was great to get out and run through the trees. There’s so much to keep your mind occupied on the trail that it forces you to be mindful of your running. One thing’s for sure: Trail running takes more effort than running on the road. What an amazing workout.
I went for a walk along the Seaton Hiking Trail today to see how suitable it is for trail running. It’s quite nice, but there was too much mud due to all of the rain we have been getting lately. I’ll have to come back again sometime to go for a run.
The trail was well marked by the (Friends of Seaton Trail) so it was easy to navigate. I started on the trail from the Concession 5 & Brock Rd. entrance, but there are other entry points from Clarkes Hollow (wherever that is), Whitevale Rd. and also Highway 7.
For people with dogs, there are two off-leash areas which is great. I’ll have to bring my dog there on a day when I’m not going for a run. I’d bring him running with me, but he’s a mastiff and they generally aren’t cut out for endurance.
