This trail is maintained by Snow Summit Resort and is subject to the facility operating hours. No resort passes or tickets are required to run this trail.

Need to Know

Beware of downhill mountain bikers possibly crossing or attempting to use the trail.

Description

Log Chute is designated as a "running only" trail on the Snow Summit resort. Be alert for mountain bikers when running up the trail, as Snow Summit operates as a downhill mountain bike park in the summer and bike trails run near this running trail.

Ample parking is available at the base of the mountain. The run starts in the vicinity of the ski lifts and is fairly well marked for runners to follow. The trail starts as a steady incline and gradually gets steeper and steeper, turning to stairs in a couple of spots as it ascends through a few switchbacks. You'll be near the top when you encounter the wooden carving of a St. Bernard rescue dog.

If you've timed your run while the resort's restaurant is in operation (Skyline Taphouse) you can purchase refreshments at the summit. If not, then the views off the north and south side of the mountain by themselves are also extremely satisfying.
