This week, the segment is on a trail that not everyone may know about, although it’s a gem – and part of a longer loop run that connects Mary S. Young and George Roberts Parks in West Linn and Lake Oswego, respectively.
The Mary S. Young Upper Loop segment is a flat, 1.3-mile loop on nice, soft trail. When you check out the map of the segment, you’ll be able to see a map of the park and all the criss-crossing trails you might not have been aware of, and you can see how you could easily log some good miles in the park.
The current leaders of this segment from the Run Oregon Strava Club are Matt Welch, who completed the loop in 6:49, and Carolyn Gilchriese, who did it in 9:02.
