Runner Notes

Bikers are present and there are several well-marked trail crossings of the main trails.

Description

This trail is currently 0.66 miles and being expanded weekly, plans for a full loop to be finished by summer 2016. Mosquito, affectionally known as "Moz," is a nice alternative for people who want to get away from the 12-foot wide ski trails and run something more rugged. It's perfect for those who don't have the time after work to get out to Cooper Landing for the more advanced trails.

The trail is being developed as an IMBA (International Mountain Bicycling Assoc.) green circle trail, so it is 36" wide and is clear of most big roots but is still twisty and fun to run!
