“A great trail through varying scenery including large mountain vistas and an interesting old tree.

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.
