This is a challenging yet worthwhile loop run to the top of Plymouth Mountain, where you are rewarded with outstanding views to the north, east, and south. Encompassing a challenging ascent and a fast and fun descent through Gambel oak, ponderosa pine forests, and open meadows, this run has it all. This run is basically a figure eight with a short out-and-back in the middle. It can be run clockwise or counterclockwise, but starting the figure eight clockwise on the Meadowlark Trail allows for a more gradual warm-up and is the route described here.
