Runner Notes

Place your feet carefully on this very rocky trail and get in the zone for some fun downhill!

Description

Done from north to south, the trail starts with a sustained climb that will get you warmed up.

You'll end up several hundred feet above the valley with fun slickrock and expansive views of Courthouse Butte and Belle Rock. Traverse along at a level elevation through more rocky trail features.

The descent is great and passes through several neat rock formations. Once on the bottom floor, it's an easy run to the intersection with Slim Shady Trail.

It is an easy run given the very modest elevation gain compared to adjacent Slim Shady Trail, and with very little foot and bike traffic. Being slightly higher than Slim Shady, it presents a superior view of Bell Rock and Courthouse Butte
