Overview

This trail is good for some variety in terrain and scenery. There's very light traffic compared to some other trails in RRC.

Need to Know

There's a bathroom at the start/finish, but no water.

Runner Notes

Much of the first half of the trail is on a double track with big gravel instead of packed. Not the most fun part of the route, but challenging.

Description

Obviously, you can run this either direction. Going counterclockwise starts you off going downhill on doubletrack with pretty good footing. A nice warm-up for the climb to come.

The middle two miles are probably the toughest because it's uphill on gravel and not as scenic.

The final two miles are the payoff-very scenic, fun switching back and forth on a packed trail, and you finish on a downhill.
