Formed around 15,000 years ago this gorge was a great place to run out all of my fear gremlins this morning. It has one of the few remaining old growth forests on the east coast, coyotes, bobcats and a nice little waterfall. The earliest inhabitants of the gorge were here 8,000 years ago and hunted wooly mammoths across the frozen tundra from the ice age. Now there is a Starbucks nearby (not really, but soon I'm sure). The native Indians were forced off the land in the late 1600s and the remains of a colonial farm are all that's left of that era. This was only a 5 mile run but it was incredibly difficult with tree roots, switch backs, fallen trees and plenty of bowling  ball-sized rocks to run over.
