Visiting from Colorado and wanted something close to Kent. Great trail with quick access, some rolling hills. It is a single lane gravel road for the most of the loop and some mild single track. This is not back woods running and 50% run along a road way.
Hilly, gravel road for most of the way, narrow gravel trail for a little bit. Don't let the name fool you, you can't get anywhere near the lake, it's a watershed reservoir that provides drinking water for the area, so you won't even see the lake during this trip. Lots of elevation change, great for a run or bike ride. A go-to spot if you're looking for a sure thing 9-miler, but don't expect anything special in the scenery department.
