Each New Year, Northwest ultra-runners join together for two loops on this route to take care of excess holiday eating. This tradition allows guilt-free meals all through the holidays. The route offers all types of running terrain and a great anytime workout. I’ve run this trail in all seasons and all weather, and to me it looks a little different each time. Although I may get tired, I never tire of this route.

Looking forward to running this in the spring/summer when the snow has melted since running it with snow was more like hiking. This map is a bit outdated and got lost a few times, the trail is now marked better but when your looking for "the unmarked trail" that is actually marked, it gets a bit confusing. Needless to say, now that I know, it will be much easier next time. The first 6 miles is really challenging, but really rewarding once you get up there. Views are spectacular and overall a great place run.
