Runner Notes

The ascent is brutal, but worth it.

Description

Heading up the mountain from the small parking area, you'll climb 1,850' in just under two miles. At the top, the views are worth it. The miles at the top involve a little scrambling, but the rest becomes an easy ascent, following a creek down the backside of the mountain. This is also a great trail for a run with a variety of challenges.
