Just off the "Old Main Trail" in Tryon Creek State Park.
Expedition #213: It was an unseasonably dark and rainy day, so dark that I actually had the silly thought at one point that maybe there was an eclipse happening that I hadn't heard about. Running didn't sound like much fun, but it turns out that trails under a thick forest canopy is actually a pretty good place to run in the rain; you still get wet, but there's not much wind and everything smells good. I haven't spent much time in Tryon Creek Park, so it was fun to explore the trail network, and to wade off into the wet underbrush at one point so as to stand at the hashpoint.
