Runner Notes

You would have to be super-human to actually run this entire route. (If you stop or walk at any point along the way, then I call fowl!) Nevertheless, it would be an epic hike, and it may actually not be too hard to run the route in reverse.

Description

Good route finding is needed when approaching Grandview Peak from this direction as the trail is not always clear. Take care to note the ridge switch up above Rudy's Flat for the return trip (if coming back the way you came.) Otherwise, you may end up going down the wrong ridge.

If returning down the center of City Creek Canyon, be wary of moose, mountain lions, and hunters. You can take a north fork of City Creek Canyon to regain the ridge at Rudy's Flat. The trail starts just up the canyon a few yards from campsite 23. The trail is well worn and easy to follow.

A singletrack paradise at the junction!

A pretty Juniper tree on the final stretch.

A view of the 4th crux. There is a trail that emerges from the forested section, then climbs straight up the hill.

Looking back down the trail at the top of the 3rd crux (monster hill). Note the T-storm in the distance. Time to get down fast! There must have been over 100 strikes in the distance as I descended.

Smooth sailing to Rudy's Flat!

Lots of route finding! Slow going but a great day out. Connected down into city creek but had a hard time finding the ridge trail
