Overview

This is an unpopulated and wild run that combines the Millennium Trail and Merritt Ridge Trail for a challenging outing.

Description

RunnerS start on the Millennium Trail. This trail starts wide but soon becomes a singletrack that apparently is not taken care of much, making the run challenging because the trail is sometimes blocked or in poor quality. Later in summer, plants make it hard to get through and block the view.

At just over half a mile, runners will come to a junction for the loop portion of the Millennium Trail. Stay to the right here to continue on this run.

Just past the one mile mark, runners will continue onto the Merritt Ridge Trail, a very remote and challenging run. It is, overall, a more challenging trail, and I did not see anyone else on this trail when running. It is perfect if one is seeking a running experience in solitude.
