This is a fun singletrack trail full of rocky terrain, creek crossings, and tight switchbacks! There are a few decent lookout points, but nothing high up by any means. You'll encounter a few fun boulders to climb around mile 1.5--bring a crash pad if you like bouldering!
Need to Know
Plenty of parking, benches, and, for some reason, scooters.
There are several areas with very rocky and difficult terrain, this is not a flat run like Katy Trail
. Beware of sudden terrain changes and wet rocks. This adds extra fun to the trail for me, but it can catch some runners off guard. This is nothing compared to CA and CO trails, though, and if you're used to fun terrain that's not flat you'll have a good time. Hard to pace under 9 minute miles, with all of the switchbacks.
This singletrack trail is very well marked; just follow the orange arrows, and you can't go wrong! There are also grey arrows that lead to a paved trail, along the way, in case you need to bail out.
After a good rain, there WILL be a lot of mud on this trail! If you're into running through mud or mountain biking, this will not upset you at all, but keep in mind that after a decent amount of rain there will be mud.
There's not much history involved with this trail, but it's a fun trail to run on, bike, or for hiking. There are plenty of hills and elevation gain. Happy trails!
