It's flat keeps you pedaling in both directions. The hole in the wall is pretty cool! Use the parking area right at the corner of Plateau and Woodchuck.dennis kimsey1 month ago11 Completed11 ReviewsFound this a very easy trail. Walked past the tunnel a ways to see where it went and saw mogul below to the north across the river.Sierra H7 months ago10 Completed3 ReviewsI love this trail! Perfect for running with my dog. It's long and flat.Sarah O'Neil1 year ago8 Completed4 ReviewsEasy trail. I went with my dog and she got very hot because there is no shade but there is water close by the whole way. She was able to jump in and cool off. I went on a Thursday in the middle of the day and only ran into a few people, mostly bikers.Holly Tretten1 year ago6 Completed6 ReviewsFun, easy trail. Lots of options for hiking, running, or playing with kids or dogs in the flume.Vanessa Franking2 years ago1 Completed1 ReviewsI have run this trail for years, and my car has only been broken into at the trailhead once. The crooks took my bag and were kind enough to dump my clothes on the dirt, so at least I wasn't naked. The trail follows a ditch, that sometimes has water, sometimes is dry. Due to this, the trail is relatively flat, so for an out and back run without hills, it is ideal, plus you can't get lost. If you want to add hills, you can add the Hunter Creek loop that leads uphill to a parking lot (with bathrooms), or start there, and run down to the ditch trail. You can make a loop and circle back to the parking lot also. Pretty good year round, can get muddy in a big rain. Rattlesnakes are out in the summer, so please watch your dogs and your footing!
