Runner Notes

Plenty of fist-sized and smaller rocks on much of the trail.

Description

At the northern end of the parking lot you'll find a kiosk, maps and the beginning of the trail. You'll turn right at the first fork to follow the trail as described here.

The beginning has some steep uphill sections but eases after a bit. At the large antenna array you'll be on dirt road as you go down the saddle and back up the other side. The summit is just to the left when you reach the high point of the road. Continue down the somewhat steep road down close to the bridge. Just before the paved bike path, turn left onto the singletrack.

Continue to follow the singletrack around the mountain going straight at both 4-way intersections and return to the parking lot.

Flora & Fauna

Not much for trees. Mostly prairie vegetation. Sometimes large herds of deer have been seen here. Rattlesnakes have been spotted on and off of this trail as well.
