Runner Notes

Some relatively steep areas where you'll have to navigate around rocks. Long stretches of flat to recover from significant uphill efforts. Be careful when it has rained!

Description

Trail starts at the end of Panther Creek Rd at the Ridge Crest Trail. Taking Ridge Crest Trail out from the roundabout, you'll cross over wide open trail with rocks interspersed throughout as you descend one hill, up another and down again towards the lake. Then you'll head left on Hunt Knob Trail as you run at the base of the ridge with views of the lake to your right. About 2 miles into your run you'll have to keep an eye out for the Hunt Knob Loop trail on your left that will hook you back towards the trailhead. After this you'll have a long uphill to the top of the ridge again. Take this all the way back and then turn back on Ridge Crest to get you back to the parking lot.
