Need to Know

This trail is popular with mountain bikers, be alert as you run.

Scout it Up was built with the assistance of the local Boy Scouts as a service component of one of their camp outs. We can't thank these young men enough for their help in building this trail!

Cacapon only closes trails twice per year for a controlled hunt: November 5-7 & November 12-14. Please do not use the trails during these times.

Description

This is a less steep, less rocky way to get uphill and form a loop back to the Batt Picnic Area Hub, rather than using Start Me Up to lower Get-On-Up.

The trail branches off of Start Me Up before it crosses the paved road and then begins a more gentle climb. There is uphill, about 118 feet of it over the 0.7-mile trail. Also, it is Cacapon, so there are still some rocks, but it is not extremely technical.

Run this uphill to where it dead-ends into Get-On-Up. Hang a right and follow Get-On-Up until it dead-ends into Giddy-Up Trail. Hang another right and continue back to the Batt Picnic Area Hub for a fun 1.5-mile loop that's great for beginners who want a little more challenge, or for anyone else who just wants a fun warm up or add-on loop to a bigger run.
