“Buffalo Trace Trail and Waterfall Trail combined to make a mini-epic of climbs and descents.”— William Ganis
Buffalo Trace Trail = Green Trail = Trail 2
Waterfall Trail = Blue Trail = Trail 3
The easy grades and smooth trail at the start pass quickly, and runners will soon find themselves at the intersection with the Waterfall Trail at mile 1.65. Turn left to transition to a rougher and rockier trail that will make you work harder through steeper climbs, a rock gully, and a stream crossing. There's also a nice small waterfall to enjoy!
Around five-miles, the Waterfall Trail ends back on the Buffalo Trace Trail. Bear left for a little bit of descending before the run's final climb to the top of the West Side of Mt. Airie. All that's left is a couple miles of descending with a few short climbs mixed in.
