Runner Notes

The second half of this trail is very runnable. Be careful when descending the stairs.

Description

This trail is a popular scenic loop which takes you up the mountain, but not too far up to be a major climb, through Douglas fir and western cedars. It then drops back down via many stairs and flattens out along Lynn Creek.

Starting at the south end of the loop, head up the mountain. You'll first climb some switchbacks before the trail turns north. At this point, the trail will straighten but continue to climb.

After some time, the trail will start down and soon begin many switchbacks and stairs. At the base you'll come to an intersection, turn left and follow the trail along the river back to the start.

The turn off for Lynn Peak.  A two mile (3.2km) slog - 4 mile return - to a nice view point.  Will almost double the elevation gain of this run if you add the detour.
