Runner Notes

This flat route is great for runners.

Description

Start at the town's east end, in Town Park or from any street that extends to the river, and stroll the length of town along the San Miguel River. Your route will be flat for the duration of the journey, but you might want to bring water and sun protection as the path has little shade.

This graded pathway's western end intersects with the Boomerang Trail and the Valley Floor Trail.
