“Enjoy this peaceful climb to Warner Peak surrounded by huge open spaces.”— Eric Ashley
Gaining the ridge is the most difficult part of the run, but don't be discouraged, as the plateau above features some wonderfully untamed land with views to match! From the ridge, look for the radio tower on top of Warner Peak. Not only is it an easy "homing beacon" to head toward, but its added elevation only makes the views that much better.
On the way back, either closely retrace your route or explore another section of the wide cradle that is formed by the plateau. Just make sure to pick a landmark to keep you oriented as you run. The final stretch down the road will give you some time to think about how nice it will feel to soak your muscles in the nearby hot springs.
