Runner Notes

The trail is wide and well maintained in most areas, but water may be a concern so be sure to plan ahead when considering a trail run, especially in the warmer months.

Description

This is part of the 64-mile-long, multi-purpose Trailway which offers a unique and exiting recreational experience for hikers, bikers, and equestrian trail riders.

The easternmost part of the Trailway, the Plains Junction Trail, can be accessed from Parnell Station or Estelline. A parking area is available at either end of the trail and a backcountry campsite area is available at Parnell Station. Water availability at trailheads and on trail is unreliable so runners and backpackers should plan ahead regarding water needs and pack plenty of water. The trail is open in most areas so wind and sun exposure can be concerns.
