Runner Notes

This network is also an equestrian park, so be aware of your dog and mind not frightening the horses. Horseback riders always have the right-of-way (I think).

Tearing down a mountain bike trail is almost as fun on foot.

Description

The trail is smooth, recently built with an eye towards mountain biking. The views from the top of the ridge are really wonderful and the burned descent into the forest is exciting.
