“A steady climb up Fairifield Hill leading to a nice lake.”— Rio Rose Nyssa Whitford
This trail is usually runed as an out and back. Start up the trail early in the day during the summer months as the bottom is in full sun and the recent fire removed some of the shade trees in the middle. The area is particularity pretty in the early summer when the wildflowers are blooming. The trail continues past Pete's Lake but the lake makes for a lovely resting spot or a good place to turn around. The return trip is a very nice downhill and has beautiful scenery.
New in 2015, the lower section of the 2 track road on the map can be completely avoided by taking a narrow singletrack right out of the lower parking lot and crossing over the jeep road. Still a rugged climb, but this run just became a lot more fun!
