“A great little run! It is uphill for the first couple miles, then flattens out a bit with a big downhill at the end.”— Jared Plummer
Featured Race - Jun 2, 2019
The loop itself is a nice training option, and this is a fun and challenging after-work sort of run. There is a good amount of elevation gain right off the start to get you warmed up. The first ~1.6 miles is uphill on mostly dirt fire roads. The course then flattens out for a bit and follows an old paved road. The final ~1.6 miles is downhill on dirt fire roads. The downhill at the end is rutted from water erosion.
The route mostly faces east and gets sun in the morning through mid-afternoon.
