Runner Notes

When it's not wet after a rain, this is a lovely route for runners.

Description

This is a "new" official trail in the park. It has been around for a while and has been used by runners and bikers alike, but was just added to the new maps Tannehill is posting this year.

A scenic run with soaring overlooks of Mud Creek, this trail is at times very narrow and not well-defined. You'll make your through pine trees only shoulder width apart at times, and have a few short but steep descents or ascents. Rain can make some the steeper sections quite slippery and even with good shoes it is advisable to grip the close-by trees for extra stability.

The sound of running water from Mud Creek adds a cathartic element to this run, and you'll find yourself at a picturesque little waterfall near the trail's midpoint.

Flora & Fauna

Pine, oak, elm, shrubbery, deer, squirrels, chipmunks, birds.
