The Bob McMullen Linear Trail is located in the village of Preston in the city of Cambridge, Ontario and it is a great place to get out, get some exercise, and commune with nature.
I like the historical and geographical information posted here. It is always nice to have some idea about what I am heading into during on my explorational runs.
I knew that the trail ran for 3.2 kilometers when I started my run and I planned on running the entire thing for a nice 6 kilometer route.
I’m not sure why I love small bridges like this but I do. Every great running spot seems to have one or two.
The view was beautiful. I had to stop and snap a picture of it.
The confluence of the Grand and Speed Rivers provides panoramic views and excellent bird watching opportunities. Species sighted include the Great Blue Heron, Osprey, numerous ducks, Red-Tailed Hawk, and the occasional Bald Eagle. from Cambridge website.
I’m not from Cambridge so I wasn’t familiar with Bob McMullen. This plaque is a great monument to his legacy. I am glad that people like Bob have given us great trails like this one.
Visit more trails and come for a run with me.
