Trail shared by Sarah E

An easy, mostly flat, but mostly exposed trail connecting to Mount Carbon Loop at each end.

Runner Notes

A smooth trail that is a nice way to add distance to the Mt. Carbon Loop.

Description

This is a nice, smooth dirt trail/road. The path mostly heads through an open field, with a portion going around a pond. When you get to the C-470 bikeway, you cross the bridge, and quickly return to the dirt trail. There are nice view of the foothills and Bear Creek Lake.

Flora & Fauna

Often see geese in the pond, and red tailed hawks soaring overhead.
