Dutch Village Adventure Park
2525 N Euclid Ave
Bay City, MI 48706
Details: this month we're hitting mostly paved trail in bay city. while the map shows us rabbiting the course from the parking lot on state park drive (frank n. anderson trailhead) to the state park and back again, we'll meet up at dutch village adventure park at the corner of state park drive and n euclid avenue since not everyone has a recreation pass (required for parking at the anderson trailhead). as the attachment shows, you can do about a 5k if you run to the anderson trailhead and back, then do a loop around the tobico lagoon. if you want more kilometers, add on a couple more by going up the paved trail to where the tobico marsh trail taps in. that should get you pretty close to an 8k. if you want even more, take a loop around the tobico trail for about another 4-5k. and if you still want more, then you are either single or have a very supportive and understanding partner; either way, the rest of us will had our beer and headed home by the time you get back. and, in keeping with the past few weeks, start time will be at 18.00 (6pm for ted davenport). we can change this course if people want to do more trail running - i.e. go from dutch village straight to tobico which should net about 5-6k. i prefer running trails, but i also don't want people stumbling around in the woods at near dusk because of peer pressure. if you want to do this option, a headlamp is a an ever better idea as the weeks progress. i'll stick with the paved trails unless there is a unanimous decision to go into the woods.
