Runner Notes

This trail can be muddy after rains. The forest road sections is frequented by ATV riders.

Description

This trail can be accessed from a variety of places, but most will take either the White Trail to reach the southern end or the Yellow Trail to begin this trail from the north.

From southern end, the trail starts off as singletrack while climbing into to the forest. The trail reaches the old forest road and turns left for a quick downhill before continuing to climb up to the intersection with the Yellow Trail.

If taking the trail from the north, it can be a quick downhill that takes runners over the forest road with a short, sharp climb before turning right onto the forest, where the trail becomes singletrack.

There are few spots on the forest road portions with some loose rock, so use caution here. Exposed rock on the road can be slippery after rains.
