Description

This trail goes up through several types of landscapes, including pine and aspen forests and sagebrush meadows and ends up going around a knoll with great views of the mountains in the area, and ends up finishing at the oldest living tree in the area, a juniper that is supposedly over 1500 years old.

For the first couple of miles, the trail slowly creeps up through a sagebrush meadow with great views all around of the forests and mountains that surround the area. The trail is a pretty steadily incline, but allows for running and there aren't many technical spots at all, as the trail is well-maintained.

Although it never gets very technical, it is still a very fun trail, especially on the way down because the grades never get too steep and so you can get going really quickly.
