Runner Notes

This is a great trail if you're looking to crush your legs and lungs with hill repeats.

Description

The M Trail is a steep, zigzagging path with many switchbacks and a lot of gain in elevation.From the main trailhead, follow the trail as it straightlines across the base of the meadow. Soon after, the trail begins an intense series of about 14 switchbacks that lead you to the "M," about 750 vertical feet above you. Get ready for great views of town and a quad-burner!
