Trail shared by Jake Weber

A fun trail that alternates between wooded sections and those just outside the timberline forested area.

Runner Notes

This is a decent route for trail running. Some minor grade changes and exposed roots will keep you on your toes. The opens spaces have paths cut, but expect long grass and exposed sun in these areas.

Description

This modest run combines varied terrain to keep things interesting. I recommend starting in the parking lot and finishing at the junction of Timberline and Dogwood Trail. This is a nice intersection near a horse barn and field area (private). The trail has recently been diverted to follow the south side of Haigler Lake and matching sections of the Blue Star Trail in that area, so follow this guide, as the local ASCG maps have not yet been updated for that section of closed trail.

The trail is mostly singletrack except for areas that are outside the timber line in open space. Here, there is doubletrack used to access orchard trees. I recommend starting this trail near the parking lot (just north of the pavilion) so that you can turn it into a larger loop from the south part of the property and wind back up on Dogwood and other related trails. Note that you have to make your way around the north side of the wooded treeline, near the pavilion to find the trailhead - there is no marking to show the path, so again you'll want to follow this map.

Flora & Fauna

This is a shared equestrian trail, so expect horse and rider encounters.
