There is no restroom at the trailhead. There are portalets near the 1/2 way point (3 miles). 

Note the posted pace. Route starts with 3 gradual up hills, a longer down hill, followed by an easy flat return with a small kicker  hill to finish it all off.  This will be a group run and no one gets left behind, but please make sure your fitness and running level match the posted distance and pace.

Route is primarily gravel with a short section of asphalt. We will be running easterly along the Cedar River Pipeline Road to Landsburg Road S.E., crossing over the Summit/Landsburg Bridge to the Cedar River Trail, coming back westerly on the CRT to 242nd Way SE/SE 244th St. and taking that for a short distance  back to our cars.
