This trail is open to bikers and equestrian riders. Be alert as you run.

Description

This trail starts out very easy, but soon gets rougher. There are steeper grades, rocky slabs, and a rolling terrain to keep you working. The full loop is more than 5.0 miles in length and there aren't any easy exit points once on the north side of the mountain. Look for a feature favored by mountain bikers that's know by locals as "the waterfall." The steep rocky slab resembles a rocky waterfall without the water.
