Overview

This trail makes a nice loop on a singletrack trail. It follows near or above the creek most of the way to and from Racer's Hill, with several brief viewpoints overlooking the creek from low bluffs.

Description

Starting at the parking area on the west side of the campground, the trail starts by heading right at the gate. On the west side of the creek, the trail snakes its way across the doubletrack/cobble road several times, but there is only a short bit at the end where you need to run the road.

Racer's Hill offers a smooth, steady climb at the midpoint of the run, and the trail loops back around at the base of the hill so you can run it multiple times to add elevation.

The trail back is smooth and runs above the creek most of the way. If you are looking for more mileage, you can combine this run with the Yellow Rock Trail to make a solid 9 mile route.
