Description

The Northside Loop is a 4.9-mile loop with a bit of everything. If done in the counter-clockwise direction, it starts with a long rocky climb with some rugged spots thrown in. As you top out, the trail descends out of the woods and into open sage.

This is where things open up into nice sage fields in the middle of this loop. Wooded technical spots are thrown into the mix but the open sage running starts again. Going in this direction can be tough later in the day as you're heading into the sun.

The loop ends as you climb back into the forest. The rocks start again as well. Overall the loop is great!
