Need to Know

The road is a bit rough to the the trailhead. A high clearance vehicle is recommended. A smaller sedan made it, but I wouldn’t recommend it.

Runner Notes

Watch your footing in multiple locations. Baby heads and cankle makers galore.

Description

A nice trail with lots of shade before the tree line. This is an out-and-back run.

Flora & Fauna

Once you get past the tree line, the meadows are covered in flowers.
