Lasso is located near Mountain's Edge and it's a great run for you plus some friends running on a lot of doubletrack. This run is also very group friendly and it's really fun—it will definitely get you sweating and you'll have a great time as there's a lot of awesome views!
It begins with some gravel areas that are a great warm up that leads into some hilly areas, then some downhill, then back to some hilly areas. Toward the end of the run, you have a nice, big hill to really test yourself at about 6 miles in. Then it's just views on your way back.
