Description

The Eastern Route Trail is the most difficult trail at Taylor Mountain Regional Park, but don't let this discourage you. A run up this trail will reward you with some great views of the area. You'll have to earn the views though as the steady gradient gains nearly 1,000 ft of elevation in just over a mile and a half.

Along the way, you'll have the option to connect to the other trails in the park as the Eastern Route Trail has several junctions with the Sky Lupine Trail and the Western Route Trail if you would like to vary your run.
