Description

This run has a little bit of everything. Stream crossings, elevation, vistas, small waterfalls, easy-to-see orange trail blazes, a ridge climb up to some large boulders, tight singletrack, smooth downhill, and good gradual uphills as well as a few steep climbs. There is camping at the bottom, as well as a few spots to camp right off the trail. Plus the Rail to Trails system is located nearby if you want to add on some mileage to your run.
