Runner Notes

A mostly even trail makes for easy running.

Description

If you are on New Hope Creek North and coming from the direction of Concrete Bridge Road you'll a cross a small creek with a trail immediately afterwards. Turn left and head along the creek for a while until you cut away and start gaining more altitude. You summit where the Piney Mountain Fire Trail meets up with the trail and then you head down more precipitously and reconnect with New Hope Creek North.
