Cap'n Jack's Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"If you are just starting to run trails or are in poor condition, do not run this route - a number of sections are extremely steep, with loose rocks and gravel. On the other hand, the views are spectacular, especially from the aspen groves in the loop section at the far end of the trail.
Also, watch out for dirt bikes and mountain bikes on this increasingly popular trail. Grade: A very difficult mix of sand, gravel, and rocks, sometimes including extremely steep ascents and descents. A turned ankle is possible in several sections."
