Great trail to run with no bikes. Ran the hiking trail around noon on a Friday. Only saw 4 people. Colors were pretty good. Really scenic.

Shout out to Greg Tasker and his 5-star trails of Ann Arbor & Detroit (https://www.trails.com/catalog_product.aspx?productfamilyid=11164) for convincing me to come to BSRA for fall color - Penosha was beautiful today. Even the boring back section on the road was pretty. The woods were so nice, I had to turn around and do the Kahchin right after the Penosha. The trails were very busy today, saw 30 or so others on the trails.
As always, the trails were in great shape, nice amount of up and down. Very pleasant afternoon.

Nice trail(s) - I did both the Kahchin and Penosha, to get about 6.5 miles. The far part of Penosha, on the road, isn't particularly thrilling, but the rest is a nice walk in the woods. Nice little hills, the trail was in generally excellent condition, shout out to the maintenance crew. I did see one hunter walking through the woods with his gun (this was in late September '16), but didn't hear any shots :-)
