This is a short but hard run. From the trailhead, follow the Cedar Gulch Trail as it immediately begins to climb up the northern side of Mount Galbraith. The trail switchbacks up through mixed forest and open grasses, heading first west and then east. After 1.2 miles of climbing the Cedar Gulch Trail ends and the Mount Galbraith Loop begins. Turn right (west) onto the Mount Galbraith Loop and immediately begin a fast but short descent before climbing again as you loop around in a counterclockwise direction. At
