This past Sunday I went trail running at Pisgah State Park in Cheshire County, NH. This is New Hampshire's largest state park, with over 13,000 protected acres - a true gem. I ran a 8.5 mile loop described here. I am fairly new to trail running and this was my favorite run to date. The loop offered some fantastic views, including Mt. Monadnock and the Pisgah Reservoir. I liked it so much I plan on signing up for the Pisgah Mountain 23K trail race in September (Maybe I will train for the 50K next year). If you are ever in southern New Hampshire and have some time to kill, take a hike (or a run) at Pisgah, you won't be disappointed.
