This is a great area. Many variations and was really feeling it the last couple of miles.
Took a slight variation going Mathis Canyon to the Top of the World which is a little shorter. Trail is in great shape and wide. Begins on tar and is flat until Mathis Canyon, then up, up, up. Glad i had my hiking poles. Great view at the top of the world although a little cloudy which was good as it was cooler. Ended at 9.81 miles round trip with 1100 elevation gain. Can't wait to go back and try other trails like Car Wreck.

It's an ass kicker going back the short cut steep hill by car wreck. If you're even in basic shape it's gonna be a tough climb, speaking after the fact. A gal on the trail was not in shape and I was worried about her when I passed her going dow, all the way down. The problem is, you've got to climb back up. Saw her on way up, sitting down all red and looked like she couldn't/ didn't want to get back up??? Geese we said we'd hope she was okay all the way back. I even kept commenting that we STILL need to saying to hubby, we have to make it back up tonight before it's dark.

Great run. Loves the mix between paved and dirt trails. The surrounding hills were stunning.
