Runner Notes

Much of the Haypress Trail is runnable, but some sections have loose/sharp gravel, ash, fallen trees, and debris. The first 5-6 miles of the Haypress Trail (near Haypress Trailhead) burned extensively in 2017, and this has made navigation/running more difficult. Other trailheads nearby may be a better option for reaching the ridgeline of Haypress Trail that is so spectacular for running.

Description

The Haypress Trail has outstanding views of wilderness in every direction, including Marble Mountain, Siskiyou, Russian and Trinity Alps Wilderness, plus Mount Shasta. The trail follows the ridgeline parallel to the Pacific Crest and then joins the Pacific Crest Trail near Marble Mountain. Parts of the trail burned in 2017 and in previous years, leaving ash, fallen trees, and debris in the trail.

Flora & Fauna

White and red fir, spruce, cedars, Saddler Oak, chinquapin.
