Runner Notes

Be careful for loose dirt and rocks at the southern end of this trail.

Description

This trail branches from the midpoint of the Vineyard Springs Trail at a small stream crossing before immediately heading directly up a steep hill. The southern section is the steepest and rockiest, with difficult and loose terrain that can make traversing difficult. The majority of the trail has a notable slope that gradually levels out as the trail heads north. A stick or poles are recommended for all but the most sure-footed runners.
