John Mountain ventured out north of town for a trail and road run from Bush Creek to Timberlands Road a couple of Sundays ago on May 13th. I left from my place in the Rocky Creek neighbourhood and cut up to the TimberWest Logging Mainline and then over through the Fish Hatchery to Click here to view run details on Google Maps.Timberlands Road before heading south near the airport. From the airport, I headed south on a narrow dirt road to the Cedar Road Junction and managed to stay completely off the main highway on secondary roads. At the Ivy Green Mohawk Station I ducked under the highway on a trail that leads to back to the TimberWest Mainline and home. This run is a 20k loop which can be completed easily within two hours at a 9 minute per mile pace. Click on the running route image to review the run details on Google Maps
