~2.0 mi @ ~21 min/mi

"Not ALL who wander are lost – but SOME are!" A paved path through the woods above Rock Creek leads to a well-trod dirt trail that branches onto a deer track that turns into thickets of brush. Back yard fences block the way to Forest Glen Park streets. Eventually, though, scramble onto Woodstock Ave after scrambling over-and-under deadfalls and shaking off a minor fall.

"Thank you, but calling it 'running' is an exaggeration!" A sweaty Thursday afternoon jogger dismisses a compliment as he crests the steep Forsythe Ave hill. At Pacci's Trattoria a carry-out Cubano sandwich is ready for pick-up.
