Brian:

Highlights include the long, rolling run through the Pawling Nature Preserve on Duell Hollow Rd, crossing the Housatonic on covered Bull’s Bridge, beaver dams at the south end of Mud Pond (mile 16.6, do not miss!), gliding along the Housatonic on River Road, the challenging dirt climb up Old Stilson Hill Road, and the adreleline-inducing paved descent of South Quaker Hill Rd.

Lunch at the IGA in Sherman, CT, mile 30.
