Runner Notes

Runners must yield the right of way to horse riders and be respectful when approaching from behind to not spook the horses. There are cattle being ranched in the park and runners should try to avoid startling them and causing the cattle to run. Finally, because of the cattle, there are many animal trails that look like the main trail making navigation difficult. Carry a map or the Trail Run Project mobile app! The cattle tanks have water, but filtration is needed to make it potable.

Description

The T Trail begins at the northern end of the campground and takes an immediate left after going through the gate. Run through the trees and slumping ground to where a new trail has been constructed through a large section of slumping hillside. The trail continues to descend until reaching a cattle trough.

Stay right at the junction with the CC Trail and cross a small stream bed. Follow the drainage along a myriad of cattle trails and take a right at a gated fence. Trend east towards another cattle trough.

Here is the junction of the T and PS Trail where you'll head directly south hugging the bottom of a large butte on the right. The trail continues through trees and begin climbing into a narrow draw before depositing you at the junction of the PS Trail, ER Trail and I Trail.

Follow the I Trail to the campground or one of the other trails to continue onward.
