Runner Notes

Loose gravel at the end can be a bit tricky to navigate, but this is a great route for runners looking to get in some serious elevation.

Description

From the Aspen Street Trailhead, veer left over the Cornet Creek bridge and begin running the upward traverse. Immediate views of town will appear. The trail switchbacks a few times up through an aspen grove. Stay right when you see the option to take a trail on the left. Continue climbing to find a wooden bench to relax and take in the views. The trail continues upwards with switchbacks and eventually opens up to big views where you'll find another wooden bench. This is the high point of the trail.

Once you've stopped to admire the view, continue on and downwards winding through aspens and arriving at upper Cornet Creek bridge. At this point, you'll begin to travel uphill for a very short time.

Remember to stay right when you reach an intersection with the Liberty Bell Trail. You'll continue on a steep descent until the Jud Weibe Trail spills out onto Tomboy Road.

As a warning, the road has a lot of gravel over its dirt surface, so be careful not to slip. The Tomboy Road exit will land you at the top of Oak Street, which leads you right back into town, or near the Aspen Street Trailhead.
