Bridgeview Park is located in Petrolia, Ontario and I thought it was the perfect place to go for a trail run this afternoon.
The trail is wide and winds for two kilometers.
There is also a leash free dog run here.
This plaque gives us some information about the Samson posts and towers that were used to drill for oil.
There is a working Historical Oil Field right on this site. It was closed though so I couldn’t explore it further.
I kept running along the trail that runs alongside Bear Creek,
down this dirt road,
and under this covered bridge.
The trail continued up at the top of the hill and ran along side a farmer’s field before it rejoined the main trail.
As you can see, night was already starting to fall at this point. That’s why the first shot in this post is so dark. It’s crazy how quickly that happens these days. Trail run season is just about over.
