This week we'll be exploring one of Baltimore's hidden treasures. Unless you've come on this run before, you've probably never been this far south in the city before! The Gwynns Falls Trail network stretches from the western end of the city, into the Inner Harbor, and south to Cherry Hill Park, where we'll meet this week. 


We'll meet in the parking lot in Cherry Hill Park at the usual 8 AM this week. Sign up for  carpooling if you need or can give a ride!
