"This is a great run that many people don’t think of. On a recent midweek morning, the author ran across only four other people on the trail, but was lucky enough to spot rabbits, a coyote, two red-tailed hawks, numerous waterfowl, and even a few mule deer tucked into the bushes. The trail runs for 12.0 miles, but only 9.0 are covered here—feel free to continue to get in a nice long run. From the parking area, head down the gentle slope toward the creek, getting on the Big Dry Creek Trail at the sign." Read more
