Description

Counter clockwise, begin at the Park Marina and run along the shore of the lake for a good distance before climbing easily up a drainage. There is a short, steep climb guarding the ridge top where you can divert onto Claylick Loop or continue on the Michael Tygart Loop.

You can run Claylick Loop and return to this point for a nice long outing. From this point, you follow the road for a bit and then pick the trail back up for the ridge run back to the road above the marina.
