Notes:

  1. We will be following the Bridle Trails Winter Running Festival course.  The length and elevation listed here are for a single lap.  I plan on doing 4 laps.  You can join me for 1 or keep going and do as many as you like.
  2. This park is used by horses so dogs will not be allowed on this run.  Also, we will need to be considerate of any riders we come across.

Goals:

  1. Build community and enjoy getting outside
  2. Do as many laps as you like!
  3. Have fun!

TERRAIN:

The trails is virtually all well-groomed  single track in a tranquil and heavily wooded area. Expect low elevation gain (compared to the other hills in the Issaquah Alps).   It's not flat but there is very little elevation gain.

Expectations:
