Runner Notes

Overgrown and hard to follow. Run somewhere else.

Description

I rated this as difficult not because of steepness but because it is overgrown and unmarked. In many sections, the trail is aspirational - hence the word "bushwack" in the title. Some areas are a narrow, singletrack with foliage up to my waist. The route is perfect for the Covid-19 plague since it is too difficult for the casual run. Wear long pants treated with permethrin, DEET, and nuclear waste—there are plenty of ticks for everyone.

This is not a maintained trail or route, so use at your own risk.

By now you're tired, but think about the toddler that managed to ride his/her tricycle this far.  Stop complaining.
