The Outer Loops is a side trail off of Elk Traverse
. The most common way to run it is on the way back, or heading South. If going this direction, the trail starts with a long downhill. It's not terribly steep.
Your downhill ends in a wash of sorts then the trail climbs back up to Elk Traverse
. Along the way, you'll hit a few switchbacks. The Outer Loop is a great alternative to coming back on Elk Traverse
