1st trip
Towne Trail 1E29
This is an old closed off forest road that is extremely smooth. It's nice except the far East end. You follow above cabins until you find yourself sandwicked between apartments and the ski resort.

Bristlecone Trail 1E32
Connector trail to the neighborhood.

Fern Trail 1E31
Not signed at the bottom hence why I hiked Bristlecone. A nice shaded ravine with namesake ferns. Just over too soon.

Pirates Trail 1E29
Stumbled upon this trail so I worked it in. This is a wonderful trail through the forest. The mountain bikes wized by faster here than other lateral trails. It's definitely built for speed.

Skyline Trail 1E32
The amount of work put into this trail is obvious as you roll through the forest at highway speeds. On a tight schedule of opportunity I tapped into my inner Boone. I'm not built for running but I intimidated my surroundings for thee miles.

Pine Knot Trail 1E01
My third trip on this popular trail. From the top I knew I needed to shave off a half hour from my standard pace. A mountain biker passed me and it was game on. Clocked my first and last 9 minute mile of my life. Downhill on a smooth trail and I'm still nowhere near an average runner... lol

Home with ten minutes to spare!
