A unique run up Perins Gulch.

Missy Thompson

Overview

Given that the trail ascends a gulch often with high walls it is not recommended to do this run if there is any threat of rain!
Features: Views — Wildlife

Description

This is one of the most unique trails in the Overend Mountain Park (aka Test Track) area.

The trail starts from the Leyden trailhead ascending gently up the drainage. There are numerous trail intersections early along the trail with the major intersections marked with trail maps. After passing the intersection with Star Wars, continue a short distance before crossing a bridge. Shortly after the bridge look for the trail dropping down into the gulch on the right (if you reach the Hogsback Trail you have gone too far).

The trail continues winding up the gulch with several short side trails that cross up on to the banks before joining back in with the gulch. The end of trail gets increasingly more difficult, so go as far as your ability allows or challenge yourself to see how far you can get.
