Trail shared by George Zankich

A wonderful doubletrack road with some interspersed sections of pavement.

Runner Notes

This is a mix of paved road and fire road. It's very wide and proves to be the backbone of the South Hills trail system.

Description

The backbone of the South Hills trail system, the motorway encounters rolling hills with one good climb on the return.

This connects to several other trails in the network. Around 0.5 miles in, you connect with Walnut Trail. Soon thereafter you meet Bonnie Cove West and almost immediately after that, Bonnie Cove. After this, you'll see North Spur, Alosta Canyon, and Alosta Canyon S. Fork. This trail ends at High Country Drive.
