Runner Notes

This trail can get a little sloppy in the lower sections, so wear shoes with decent lugs if you have them.

Description

This trail is primarily used as a winter cross-country ski trail. As such, it cuts a broad corridor through the forest, though the actual tread has the character of a singletrack trail. From the Knob Trail, head straight across for the first and biggest climb. After half a mile, cut north and roll along the perimeter of the park.The trail turns west and eventually you skirt the edge of Hanrehan Lake until the trail turns back east and finally south where you rejoin the beginning of the trail.

Flora & Fauna

Lots of great birds live in the area, both aquatic and forest-dwelling types.
