The first thing that we do when we move to a new place is explore the hiking/biking trails. We especially look for trails that are dog friendly and allow off leash running. Our favorite trail in Northern PA is in Asbury Park. The Asbury Park trail (in NW PA) is part of a larger trail system that includes creeks and mountain biking trails. I love that it’s covered in mulch and wooden board walks that help control the mud. We found some interesting trees, as well:
We love that the park is never very crowded, even though it’s such a beautiful, peaceful place. It’s a great escape during the work week. We also love to mountain bike there, which is perfect for me since I’m just now getting comfortable on the bike trails.
Where is your favorite place to escape the city? How do you escape the daily grind?
