Challenging trail with many hills.

Features Birding · Views · Wildlife

Must register with Russell Lands annually at General Store or stables. Also must call security office to check in / out.

Overview

This trail has many challenging hills along the way. Overall, the trail is in good shape, but be prepared for many inclines. I found the tunnel that goes under the highway to be pretty neat, but didn't slow down to really look around much.

Need to Know

This trail can be combined with many other trails.

Runner Notes

They have recently cut timber on some of Wind Way Hills trail, which made it more challenging and hot since it has minimal shade. The trail is in decent shape.

Download the app called Russell Lands which has maps etc.

Description

I started at Seven Points Picnic Area and took Link Way through the tunnel and connected with Wind Way Hills, making my way down to The Ridge Entrance. This trail has many hills that are very challenging.
