Runner Notes

The trail may be grown over by grass, but should still be easily followed.

Description

Go through the tunnel and take a right after going under the interstate. Head up slightly then follow the contours of the hill through the grassy area.

Take the trail uphill twisting, rising and falling up the mountain. You'll pass through areas of dense trees and foliage with some rocky sections. Continue uphill until meeting up with the Hopa Maste on your right. Follow the trail uphill until coming to an intersection with the Ridge Trail.

From here, take another trail to complete a loop or head back down the way you came.

Flora & Fauna

Turkey, deer, wildflowers.
