Trail shared by Joshua Wells

A pleasant run leading to interesting views of the mountains and plains.

Description

The trail is very easy to follow and leads straight to a peak with no major diversions that I noticed. Once you're at the top, you'll have some nice views to the south and to the west.

There appeared to be a fair amount of wash out along the trail itself, so most people seemed to be running just to side of the ruts in the trail. Crumbly granite gravel and dirt primarily make up the trail.
