“A great loop trail through a hilly ranch with potential for great views.”— Taylor Simmons
The trail is a steady incline and quickly intersects with Strawberry Jack Trail. The trail continues to gain elevation, though moderate. You'll come to an area with a great deal of open space due to a recent wildfire which actually provides a unique experience and opportunity to spot wildlife.
Next there will be a 4-way junction and you'll want to take a right onto Skipper Trail which will take you West and assist in completing a loop with Buck Gulch Trail. Skipper Trail is mostly flat, non-rocky, and wide, making it a comfortable section of the run.
Hang a right back onto Buck Gulch Trail where you'll begin a descent back towards the trailhead and completion of the loop. This section is speedy with good footing, mostly devoid of rocks and other "tripping" elements.
