Runner Notes

Be aware of mountain bikers. There are a few blind turns.

Description

Starting off at the dirt parking lot of Lower Bristlecone, you proceed up a long and gradual climb for around 3 miles. Around the 3 mile marker you pass the trailhead for the Bonanza Trail. After you pass the Bonanza Trail, you continue up the doubletrack for around another .25 to .3 miles until you hit the fun singletrack of the Upper Bristlecone Trail. Along this portion you come across some beautiful Aspen groves. The trail ends around the 6 mile mark which happens to be next to the Lee Canyon Ski Resort. To finish this loop you'll need to run along the paved road for around .7 miles back to the Lower Bristlecone trailhead and parking lot.

Flora & Fauna

Bristlecone, Fir trees. Wild horses.
