Runner Notes

This trail is heavily used by mountain bikers. Headphones are not recommended.

Description

Start at the Bullfrog Lake general use lot. From the trailhead, head north and the trail quickly winds to the west and south through a more open area full of large maple trees. The colors here are stunning in the fall. The trail then drops along a rocky downhill, landing on a small culvert over a small stream. The trail then starts a gradual climb to the southeast, passing the Campground Trail and two other unmarked trails, terminating at the intersection of the Green Trail.
