Blane County Adams Gulch Trail

I had Saturday afternoon all to myself and decided that I needed some trail time near Sun Valley.

I have wanted to do Adams Gulch trail for a while, but last summer, the high water levels had made some of the water crossings where you would have to get wet. So last year, I wussed out and did not do any of that. This year, the water is low and the trees are starting to change color, so with a little encouragement from the Elephants Perch instagram account earlier this year, I decided to hit up this trail.

The directions to the trail posted on the Blane County Rec site was spot on. It was easy to find using the directions posted. Turn on Adams Gulch road from Highway 75. I came from the north.


There was a little road construction on the bridge leading to the trailhead. No biggie. The trailhead was packed with vehicles. This place really is happening!

Race For Hearts

I have the racing bug. Not that I have ANY speed right now and my doctor said NO on distance because of my janky knee. But I have the racing bug.

In my Robie swag bag, I went through all of the flyers for races coming up. There is a 5K this weekend and I HAD to sign up.

It is the Race For Hearts and it is a benefit for the Jayden Deluca Foundation.

I love the 11am start time. And the Hawks Stadium is so close to where I live, I am going to ride my bike there.

BBQ (although on the site it says Port Of Subs will be there with sammys. BBQ'ed sammys?). Beer Garden. Bouncy houses.

Their Facebook says they got a delivery of QuestBars for the event. And people sure seem to love those on the Twitterverse. 

Downside is that the race is just a couple days away and there is NO info about packet pick up or anything. So I am guesstimating that this will be race day packet pick up?

Whatever it may be, I will be there.

You racing this weekend? Did you do this race last year?
