Description

The trail is nice and easy to follow until the last two miles where it becomes steep over rock outcrops making it hard to follow. You'll need to look for some trees that have white rope with blue dots tied to them, as well as rock cairns to help mark the trail.

The best time to run is end of June to October or when the snow is gone from the mountains.
