“A popular and well-marked cross country skiing/snowshoeing loop that doubles as a decent running trail.”— Keaton Reed
After about a mile and a half, there is a large sign with a map indicating that the trail heads south, and climbs up a canyon. This section may be overgrown in the summer time. If you don't want to bushwhack, you can go another half mile along the road and opt to ascend up an old jeep trail. This will probably add another mile to your run, but it might be worth it. The trail rises to a saddle with nice views before dropping back down to Elk Butte Spring and the parking area.
