“A nice run along the ridge that takes you to the far north portion of Dinosaur Valley State Park.”— John Shuttlesworth
This trail follows the ridgeline that is only about 100 feet above the valley floor so there isn't any strenuous uphill climbs. As most trails in this area you'll wind in and around a vast cedar forest. Plan to bring sunscreen as shade is variable throughout this run. This trail winds around the ridge making several distinct turns and eventually connecting back with the Cedar Brake Outer Loop at the far northern portion of the park.
Overall this is a nice run that gets you away from some of the more traveled sections of Dinosaur Valley. The trails are all well-marked with signage throughout the park so way finding is fairly easy.
