Trail Running in Bangor City Forest
I've been trail running the past two weeks as I've started training for a half-marathon in November. Mostly this has been in the Bangor City Forest (5 mile route here, 4 mile routes here, here and here). This is a great place to run since the trail system allows for a variety of different routes. Bug spray and a hat (to prevent flies from attacking your head) come in handy.
The forest has miles of uncrowded trails.
Trail maps are located throughout the forest.
Bug spray is essential when visiting the forest. This is the only natural product that I found actually works.
