Runner Notes

Short, easy trail.

Description

This trail is short and easy. Very little grade is present on the inclines and the trail is mostly soft sandstone wash. For a mild run, it offers an excellent terminus: Eagle's Nest is a stack of large boulders scattered along a pinnacle. It's a great place for viewing far over the trees or just scrambling around the boulder piles.

Flora & Fauna

Blueberry shrubs are scattered around the trail side and many tall oak and pine rise above the trail.

Eagle's Nest seems to also be a bluejay nest, because they were causing quite a fuss.
