Oak Point Nature Preserve
Overall this run was awesome with no caveats. It gives a runner the option to stay paved going for the open plains or to go dirt path in a spacious oak forest with a gorgeous natural ravine winding throughout. The unpaved trail does have fallen trees along the path so avoid this if you can’t easily climb over things.
This is a safe and family friendly trail that is highly recommended for any level runner.
PATH: The path choices are paved or dirt natural path. The paved route takes you along a scenic trail and by a pond. The dirt path will take you through a forest of oaks with a ravine winding throughout. Both options eventually lead out onto an expansive open plain. This run gives you a variety of environments from forest to big wide open Texas plains.

Trails Left To Run
The mission of the Jog Blog is:To bring people together through our shared love of running. To encourage each other to reach our goals both on the trail and off. To bring the joy of running a new trail to anyone, anywhere through pure uncut POV video.
I thought what better way to chronicle runs than to record the trails from a point of view angle that only the Go Pro Hero camera can provide. I hope these videos make it easier for runners to research new trails and also bring the outdoors indoors for people who may be home bound.
“On my honor I will do my best To be a better runner; To watch for cars, and increase my mileage gradually; To run in the rain, without boast or complaint; To not go out way too fast; To eat right, listen to my body, and one of these days, volunteer at a race” -from, www.DRRunner.Wordpress.com
