“A long distance running trail that covers every type of terrain, fauna, and flora imaginable!”— Justin S.
There are plenty scenic opportunities for pictures along the trail so make sure you bring your camera along. About 4 miles in, near Pass Creek, the trail can get boggy with melting snow and rain water, but it should be suitable for the summer season. As you get closer to the 10-mile mark, you'll be near the snow-capped mountain tops of Bonanza Peak which offer much cooler climates to runners.
Between miles 14-16, you'll be able to see the valleys below which contain snow covered ravines and lush forests in the distance. After enjoying the higher peaks, the trail winds back down through the valleys to the Glacier Peak area.
