Hi, my name is Erin and I run cross country for Whitman College. I'm working at Grant this summer. I was wondering if anyone knew any good (and safe) places to run from Grant.
Most of the road system in the park is not built with runners or bicyclists in mind, sadly. You'll be living in the dorm in an employee housing area along a road that leads back to the marina and an employee RV area. Traffic is generally light enough that you can run in those areas without too much interference from vehicles. One you get out onto the GV entrance road, and the park's main road system, though, it's a little more problematic.
The road between Grant Village and the Panorama Overview west of Duck Lake, which is about 2.5 miles long, has enough shoulder space that it'd be pretty safe to run, and we had a few employees last year who did that quite frequently without any problems.
I worked in GV last summer, so if you have any other questions feel free to ask.
