Runner Notes

Good, even trail

Description

From the parking lot, the trail follows a tree lined drainage for a mile before it cuts across the grassy hillside.

After arriving at the next drainage the trail switchbacks it's way for the next couple of miles.

As you continue up, the environment gets starker and provides some beautifully sculpted landscapes.

Finally as you top out stay right as you meet the Glen Dene Ridge Track and will be greeted with vast 360-degree views at the summit of Isthmus Peak.
