A great loop around Bridle Trails State Park, with rolling hills and green forests.

Andrew Fraser

Overview

This is a great singletrack run around the outer edges of Bridle Trails State Park. There are lots of other trails to explore if you want to make a longer (or shorter) run.

Runner Notes

Watch out for horses and be prepared to yield. The loop is used as the race course in the Bridle Trails Winter Festival. It is repeated 6 times for the 50K race distance.

Description

This loop begins at the main facilities near the car park. It starts on the Raven Trail for 0.75 miles. The Raven Trail is an easy trail with good markings. From the Raven Trail, take the Raven to Coyote Connector to continue onto the Coyote Trail.

The Coyote Trail rolls steadily up and down, winding through dense, green woods. As the trail skirts the edge of the park, you can see some homes through the woods, but you'll still enjoy a peaceful section through large and stately trees. There are a variety of connecting trails throughout this portion, but most are singletrack so it is easy to stay on the wider, more well-maintained, Coyote Trail.

From the Coyote Trail, you'll continue onto several unnamed trail that hug the eastern edge of the park. Just keep heading south along the edge of the park until the trails rejoin the Coyote Trail about 3 miles in. From here, follow it to the main trailhead where the Raven, Coyote and Trillium trails all intersect.

Very, very muddy. Parts of the trail were flooded and I had to find alternate trails. This would be a good run in the summer, but not in the wet winte 3mi
