My Trail Run Through the Swamp

It’s time for another visual tour of my trail run. This time, I hit the Lafarge 2000 Trail that runs alongside Beverly Swamp between the 8th concession and Highway 97 in Flamborough, Ontario, Canada.

I started on the road a few kilometres away from the start of the trail.

This hill was tougher to run up than I thought it would be. It doesn’t really look like it, but it is a steep and steady climb.

The upward climb continues on the side street at the top of the hill.

Yay, I made it to the start of the trail. So far, I’ve ran about two kilometres.
And finally, a downhill so the rest of the run shouldn’t be as much work.

Now the trail really begins. I really like being able to run through the woods along a nice dirt trail and this one didn’t disappoint.

Here’s some information about Beverly Swamp and this two-kilometre trail.

For a swamp, this trail is pretty dry. There are a few small bridges like this along the trail though.
I can hear the road again. I think I’m coming up to the end of trail.
Here is some more information about the trail.

And here is the trail marker at the next main road. Time to turn around a run back.

And in no time, I’m back at the place where I first came in (actually it took me about 12 minutes)

Another hill to run up. I guess this run is uphill both ways (just kidding)

I really enjoyed this run. It’s nice to be able to connect with nature, and there sure was lots of it here.

I kept a good pace and since the trail is called Lafarge 2000, I think it is safe to say that the trail was 2000 meters or 2 kilometres long. I ran it straight there and back and I ran a little while to get there. All in all, it should have been about an eight-kilometre run and based on my time of 36 minutes, I can say that that is a realistic estimate.
Well, that’s it. I hope you enjoyed this latest visual tour of my run. See you next time!
