Trail shared by Markk Knowles

A great local trail with a somewhat strenuous climb to warm you up.

Description

The Zipper Loop is most notable for its inspiring climb and outstanding views of the local area.

It has a good number of options to be runed. After enduring the steep climb loaded with tight switchbacks the trail has a lot of rocky terrain. I found it to be very enjoyable for the variety of terrain throughout the trail. The run back down the initial climb will put a smile that stays with you for a while.
