Need to Know

You might want some gloves for all the fixed lines

Runner Notes

Awfully steep and a lot of fixed lines to ascend for a running trail

Description

This powerful trail can easily be found with good signage. The first mile of the trail heads up through thick, verdent forest with some massive, ancient trees. Much of the time you are being assisted by fixed ropes and vegetation to grab on to.

The next mile is mixed between slick slabs of granite and some forested area. You begin to get big views of the valley and the surroiunding mountains.

The final mile the trail is relatively flat with only a few steep sections. Enjoy the feeling of being at the top of the world (even if you're only at 5000').

Flora & Fauna

Alero trees (South American redwood).
