This is an out and back (plus a little) that is very remote. It takes a 35 minute chartered boat ride to get to the Cruiser Lake Trail trailhead. It is a rare experience to run in a very green, lush, and quiet area. You are likely to see wildlife as not many hikers or runners explore that area.
Need to Know
The rock parts of the trail can be slick. It can rain at anytime. Be prepared.
An amazing out and back on the Cruiser Lake Trail. It is very well marked. At the time, there were many trees down across the trail which required navigation over or around. It is a very remote area. The run is all singletrack but there are some areas where the trail is on smooth rock.
Flora & Fauna
I saw a bear. It ran from me. Options for deer and other animals.
