This was a fun out and back trail. It did intersect with other trails so you can start another trail on the way back if you'd like. It had some technical stuff towards the top but gave you a great view of the lake/bridge through the trees. This was the more "difficult" of the yellow trails as you get towards the top, but a blast either way.

This was the last trail I ran this day and I probably would have enjoyed it more but it was 103 degrees, in the shade. Once the sun started to go down and it was more bearable and I cooled off in the mud pits off Turkey Creek Road before heading back to camp.
