Island Trail Run


New favorite running trail on Bainbridge Island.  I always loved Battle Point Park, it is a huge park with everything any kid ever wanted.  Playground, pond with ducks, trees, grass, multiple soccer, baseball, basketball, and tennis courts, picnic tables, and even a huge telescope up on the hill which is sometimes open to the public, there was also always a trail that ran around the perimeter of the park perfect for biking or running.  Now there’s another super cool aspect.  There is a trail that leads out of it and into the Grand Forest, which was my favorite little trail run/hiking place there.  The Grand Forest was already gorgeous and the new trail is perfection.  It’s called the Forest-to-Sky Trail (Love the name) and this is the start!  photo 2-21

To get to it, you walk through a hardly visible trail in the park (super insider secret) and go through a potion of the fence that’s been removed.

And now a little journey through the rest.  Some images are blurry.  Still working on slowing down enough to steady the camera.  Runner problems.

Ok the shed thing is really cool but also kinda creepy.

I fully intend on running this trail and the park every time I am on Bainbridge, next of which will be in June!  Get ready trail, I am very excited to see you again.

I am wondering now about finding more new trails where I live but that are also safe, used a lot, etc. etc.  Anyone have good trail websites?
