Runner Notes

A well-maintained trail; not really any obstacles.

Description

Take Highway 41 to the Cerro Alto Campground exit. Continue all the way to the end of the road to where the trailhead is. Take the trail to the top, there isn't really much other than that.

There are a couple nice shaded areas along the lower part, the rest is pretty open. Be sure to pack water and sunscreen. The trail is a tough climb, as it is 2.7 miles of all uphill. Thankfully it is a pretty steady climb, so once you get going, there are few surprises.

Once at the peak, enjoy the great views of the entire county.
