“A nice run past some beaver ponds.”— Shaun Malone
You start by heading past the trailhead for Temple Fork Sawmill, which is another good trail, and you'll see the trailhead for Spawn Creek past another parking area with a vault toilet. This trail quickly turns to singletrack which can become quite muddy at times. After running a total of 2 miles, you get to a point where you have to cross the creek. This can be accomplished with a quick splash through the water which is usually shallow in this area or you can go right and come across a small bridge. After this point, the trail becomes a bit trickier. The trail begins to climb and the last half mile is filled with rocks, downed trees, and several very muddy sections.
There are several beaver ponds in the area, which account for the downed trees. Depending on the time of year there are great views of fall colors or wildflowers. There is always a nice view of the mountains as you run.
After about 3 miles in or so the trail can become a little harder to follow and might be overgrown. I usually turn around at this point, but for those more adventurous you can continue. The more people that continue the better the trail will become past this point.
