Runner Notes

Good, even trail with some loose cobbles.

Description

Coming off of Ridge Trail, look for a well-marked singletrack trail heading off to the right. The trail starts along Buckquarter Creek and slowly builds until it rises steeply. The last section of the trail becomes doubletrack as it meanders through open, mature hardwood forest and finishes at Ridge Trail.
