Description

This is an easy run alongside a streambed that can be nice in the spring. It would be 3-star run if it were further from the I-52 freeway.

Flora & Fauna

Magpies and swallowtail butterflies.

Most of the trail is riparian and quite cool.

Trailhead at Limerick Road at the eastern terminus of the trail. Trailhead is at a highpoint, with quite a steep scramble to reach the rest of the trail.

Fun easy trail to run with my dog. Trail narrows in places so watch for the occasional person on a bike, some ride pretty fast through. 4mi — 0h 48m
