Nockamixon SP on the south side of the lake (figuring the bulk of the park visitors would be in the more developed area on the north side of the lake). Several cars in the parking lot but only saw about four others on the trail. Ran on the Elephant Trail (or more correctly, trails in the area of the park where all the trails are called Elephant Trail - a quirk of Nockamixon). Trails were muddy, at least in those areas where they are flattish. A few excursions into the woods to get around mud. Trail on the return (further from the lake) was better and more interesting - more meandering single track, less mud, some nice woods and a couple of streams. Mid 40s, mostly sunny.
An upside to the current social distancing experiment seems to be that more people are getting outside to exercise (glad this didn’t start in the dead of Winter - although perhaps it should have). And I think parents are getting more quality time with their kids (and appreciating teachers more).

Walking Purchase Park. Running on rocky trails is a lot easier than biking on those same trails. I suppose that’s partly because I can precisely control my foot placement while running but don’t have that level of control of wheel placement with the bike. Plus once you’ve dealt with obstacle on foot, you are past it while the bike still has another wheel to get over or around it. So this was a pretty challenging ride, especially when I ventured beyond the trails I’d determined as “not too bad” for biking. Lots of climb too. Took the powerline on my return, which is much more rideable. Then played around on some of the flatter trails near the parking lot. A couple of falls, but with relatively soft landings. Nice day - low 50s and mostly sunny.
