Runner Notes

This is a gravel road that is well packed.

Description

From Auxier Ridge Trailhead, run back along the road to the roundabout or follow the short unnamed connector from Auxier Ridge Trail #204 to the road and continue out the ridge on the quiet road.

At the end, you can pick up the Double Arch Trail for access to Auxier Branch Trail #203.

There are some nice side trails which offer out-and-back runs along unofficial, but popular trails.
