by Oct 17, 2021Walktober

Welcome back to Day 17 of Walktober!

Today, we’re heading back to Garrett Trails and highlighting the Herrington Manor to Swallow Falls Trail! We heard about this trail from Luke earlier this week, and have had several folks interested in learning more! (https://gogarrettcounty.com/walktober-day-12-explore-herrington-manor/)

[The Herrington Manor to Swallow Falls Trail is a] 5 mile (one-way) trail connecting Swallow Falls and Herrington Manor State Parks through Garrett State Forest.  Much of this trail is on old logging roads and a historic railroad bed. The trail is fairly level, but some long hills test your endurance.

    42 this am. Back on the elliptical this morning. Walked this trail with friends in the past. Didn’t go to the falls that day. Made it a shorter hike.

    I use to love, stashing a car and lunch at SF, then go to HM to run from HM to SF trail then have lunch at the Falls.

      My family and I went there last weekend and it was too foggy to see anything, unfortunately.
