“A steep and rocky doubletrack/singletrack that's a tricky descent and a tougher climb.”
— Alan Cross
The Reed Creek Trail starts where the gravel Reed Creek Road ends shortly after a cabin. Runners will head into the National Forest for one of the more challenging climbs in the area. Things will get steeper and pretty technical right away.
Continue straight until the main route crosses Reed Creek and comes to a campsite with a large fire pit in the middle. The trail continues to the right behind a large water bar. At this point, it becomes more of a singletrack trail with lots of loose rocks. Continue climbing until you come to a sharp right-hand switchback and go right to finish up the last bit of trail, which is much less rocky at this point. Emerge at Camping Gap.
Reed Creek makes for a good downhill in the opposite direction.
