Runner Notes

A nice trail for running.

Description

This trail starts out at the parking lot for Uncle Tom's Trail, crosses the road and travels through pleasant meadows with a few stints through older stands of trees to join up with the Clear Lake-Ribbon Lake Trail.

Follow this trail with the Ribbon Lake - Artist Point Connector to loop back to the South Rim Trail for a wonderful loop.
