This 5.7-mile counterclockwise loop boasts 1,325 feet of elevation gain, most encountered in the first 2 miles. This very enjoyable route offers sweeping vistas of forest and rocky outcroppings from the nearly 8,000-foot high point, coupled with very runnable terrain including one creek crossing over a stable wooden bridge. Start the run on steps leading uphill for the first short climb. Enjoy some rolling terrain, which includes some flat sections, for the first mile before the true climbing begins.
