Runner Notes

Watch out for some loose shale rock around mile 7-8.

Description

This loop utilizes mostly singletrack trail that straddles the third fork of Rock Creek and loops back around to the Third Fork Campground. There ascents and descents are gradual.

Starting out, you'll parallel Rock Creek and run by beaver bonds with high desert mountains all around you. Heading back north, about halfway through the loop, you'll climb into aspen trees and will run into some snow starting around the end of October usually.

Coming back around as the loop turns to the north, there are three gradual switchbacks that can wear you out if you don't pace yourself. They are not too steep, however, and the view from the top is gorgeous. After the switchbacks, it is a few downhill miles to pick up the pace and finish your run back at the campground.

The trail is fairly technical but makes for a great loop run.

Flora & Fauna

Sagebrush, aspens, wildflowers, pine.
