“This is a 3.4 mile run on a shaded path to the dam and back. A scenic waterfall flows here in the wet season.”— Tom Hallberg
The first mile of the loop is easy and relatively flat. There are periodic benches throughout the path to rest or to exercise. There are also periodic picnic tables if you wish to take a break along the way. There are designated fishing piers available to fish.
At the one mile mark, the path turns to the right and you begin you climb up a beautiful (and noticeable...) hill. From the turn off the main path to the top of the hill is approximately .2 mile. As you approach the top of the hill, you'll notice a waterfall to your left that runs along the path. Much of the year, water is running. During the dryer summer months, it tends to dry up. After a heavy rain, it can be quite beautiful and impressive! Note that the hill does go up higher - another 0.4 miles up if you choose to get a significant workout to the top! Our featured route turns around at the falls and heads back down the hill to continue along the main path to the dam.
Throughout the path, you'll notice mile markers every 0.2 miles to help you keep your pace and help with navigation. Our featured run turns back around after taking in a view of the lake at the dam. We then retrace our steps back through the heavily wooded Carriage Trail—skipping the hill on the way back. You can easily make this a near 4 mile route by taking the full Carriage Trail and visiting the waterfall again on your way back.
