Directions - click here

From there can go either direction of Greenlake to Ravenna.  Follow dirt trail down middle of Ravenna to Cowen/Ravenna Park.  Run to the end of the park then back to Greenlake and around back to Bathhouse parking lot.

This is all dirt!

Option to add some more mileage in Woodland park for those interested in kicking up the miles.

Goal is for everyone  to run at a conversational pace.  This is a key component in taking your trail runs farther in the frontcountry and especially in the backcountry.

Conversational pace means you can talk in complete sentence without gasping for breather, can easily breath through you nose, or have an average heart rate typically less than 140 (75% of max heartrate).  Shouldn't be huffing and puffing.
