“This run is awesome even after it has rained. The trail is a wide dirt trail, no roots or rocks. There are great views!”— Julia Airapetya
After heavy rains, there are only a few areas where you have to slow down due to mud. The first mile (from the parking lot to Deer Hollow Farm) may be full of people on weekends, but after that you'll mostly meet only seasoned runners.
When the High Rogue Valley Trail turns southwest, you begin to climb. The climb gets steep after four miles, while you are on the sunny High Meadow Trail. At the 1600' summit, you think it'll all be downhill. But no, there will still be some climbing.
Stay on the PG&E Trail and descend past the first parking lot down to the second. A couple of loops in the parking lot are great for cooling off, and making sure your GPS logged ten miles.
