Trip Report:
In my 2nd annual boys backpacking trip this year I got Jonah to join Luke and I as we headed up to Pinckney for a hike into Blind Lake. We had company coming into town on Friday night so we made this a Thursday night excursion. It was two weeks til school starts so we had to make a go of it before then.

The Legend Trail Half & Lake Ovid Kayaking

The 2017 running of this race marked my third entrance into it.  The Legend Trail Half Marathon is on my list every year as races to plan for.  The course itself is essentially a loop around the park and lovely Lake Ovid which is at the heart of the park.  Its not an overly difficult course.  Parts of the trail are thick with roots and there are a few modest hills along the way.  Large sections of the course are a bit grassy with other sections a wide single-track in the forest.
