Easy going trail run intended for ski tourer's getting in shape for ski season.   However all are welcome.   Route starts with a little hill, which we will walk up. Then the next mile and half are flatish so we will jog along to get nicely warmed up,  we then climb 400 feet in a half mile,  walking or jogging -- we will regroup at all trail intersections.    The return portion of the run is down, rolling and flat.   We will take it easy on the two steeper downhills.
