Rock outcroppings along a well-worn trail.

Description

This section of the Main Trail begins at the Nature Center and passes across the top of a rock outcropping. If you are looking up at the rock outcroppings then you started on the Garden Rock Loop Trail by mistake.

The Main Trail loop begins at the Nature Center and wraps around the perimeter of the running area for a total of 6.5 rugged miles. Many connecting trails and unpaved vehicular trails interconnect, and each trail intersection has a lettered sign post to help runners maintain their bearings. It's easy to shoot off on the wrong trail, so pay close attention as you approach trail intersections.

This run may be best done in the winter as it affords more views of the lake and avoids challenges of overgrown trails.
