“An out and back run that loops around at a keyhole overlook of the mountains.”— Kayla Dome
About a half a mile in, runners will come across a slightly rocky surface before returning to a smooth dirt path. It travels mostly uphill for .8 miles before a gradual down and up leading the Keyhole. The overlook is popular towards the end of the day with the great view overlooking the mountains west, so the trail can get a little busy. It is a relatively unknown trail though and mostly used by locals.
At the top of the Keyhole, travel north towards a small loop that takes runners back to the main trail to the parking lot. It is a very enjoyable route and one of my local go-to spots.
