Kains Woods to Warbler Woods

I love running down a nature trail, not knowing exactly where it will take me, experiencing the quiet surroundings, and getting a workout at the same time. And I love sharing these journeys with you.

A few years back, I discovered Kains Woods and had a very nice run in the fall. The pictures are gorgeous.

Last week, I ran the trail again and ended up at this non-marked trail entrance.

There was still some more trail to explore, but I was exhausted and figured I would save it for another day.

But the very next day, I went back to see where this trail really did end.

It wasn’t far down the trail before I had to make this quick right turn, run down a small valley, and then back up the other side..

The trail then continued for one kilometer,

before it came to an end at Oxford Street in London, Ontario.

I ran across the street and headed in the opposite direction of the bridge.

I knew exactly where I was and thought it would be a good idea to run all the way to Warbler Woods.

The paved multi-use trail was really nice.

I took it all the way to the end and then ran through Warbler Woods back to its parking lot.

Then, I retraced my route and went back to the Shore Road entrance of Kains Woods.

That run was about 4 kilometers, so I ran down the suburb streets a little bit to get my 5 kilometers in.

As you can see on my Nike+ App, I started at the green dot, ran 1 kilometer to the main street, ran another kilometer down the street, and then ran through Warbler Woods, before returning to where I had started, ran down those streets some more and finished up my route.

I have never run two different woods before in one continuous run. It was fun!

I hope you enjoyed it too!
