Description

This singletrack loop is a classic Appalachian wooded trail where you'll encounter some fantastic views. Known as the Big Pine Trail, this is the intermediate loop in the race. Near mile 2, you'll come to a large grove of towering pine trees, the namesake of this trail. Enjoy the soft cushion of pine needles.

You'll encounter a steep drop as you hug a contour line for half-a-mile before climbing back up for another run through the pines. The trail then rollercoasters along the edge of the 600 escarpment of the Briery Mountains. Enjoy the view through the trees.

My foot pod tracked 5 miles. Excellent run for my first Ragnar trail race. Moderately technical. 5mi
