Two Training Options outside of Loch Haven Lake
I suggest you either park at the Bennett Spring Parking Lot or at the end of Timberview Road. Using the Cove requires a Trail Usage Pass. You can get these passes at at each of the trailheads listed below. There is a drop box at each kiosk.
Timberview Road – https://goo.gl/maps/KiaD8NtvUZbybAUG7
Off or Route 419 (Electric Road), turn off on to Dutch Oven Road and then almost immediately turn right onto Timberview Road. This road will end at a gravel parking lot. From this lot, you can run the course minus the 2.5 miles to and from Loch Haven (1.35 miles at the start and 1.15 at the end).
Bennett Springs – https://goo.gl/maps/AQseM2592XtpSWvf7
Just north of Salem on route 311. Take Carvin’s Cove Road to a stop sign, go right, and take this back to the big gravel parking lot on the right. This is the best location for parking but you’ll miss out on some of the course from here.
