Runner Notes

A very rocky second half of the trail.

Description

At the start of the trail is a metal gate labeled Garnet Peak Trail. Climb over the gate and start the run. The trail starts off fairly wide in the valley with a mild incline. The peak can be seen straight ahead. About 0.5 miles into the run, you'll cross the PCT.

Continue straight and another sign will lead you in the direction of Garnet Peak Trail. The remainder of the trail is a more moderate incline and fairly rocky. There are a few bigger rocks near the summit which may require some good footing and large steps over.

Once you reach the peak, you'll enjoy 360-degree views.
