Runner Notes

Recommended use Wednesdays and Saturdays due to mountain bike closure. If you choose to run on a day that bikes are allowed, it is recommended to pay attention to the direction of bike traffic, which is posted and run against bike traffic. This makes visibility for both parties better. Always be courteous to everyone using the trail.

Description

From the trailhead, the Canyon Loop opens up to an open grassland on the rim of the preserve. The first half of the trail quickly drops in altitude and the second half of the trail is spent gaining altitude. The trail is mainly comprised of singletrack and has numerous opportunities for amazing views. The trail is made up of compact dirt with some rocks and roots showing.
