This is a terrible running route and should be called Rolling Hills Horse Poop. The first mile had me fooled because it’s gorgeous with a nice soft trail and lots of shade. At mile 1.5 you realize this route is totally Frankensteined together with some trail, lots of road, private property, and a lot of narrow horse poop littered trail. Literally the entire last half mile is 6” deep horse shit because you’re running along a stable fence line and the people who live there are just dumping horse poop over the fence.

It was a pain in the ass to navigate. If you’re trying to maintain any kind of pace, just run on the roads the whole time. This trail took me 30% longer to run just to figure out where I was supposed to be going.

I commend whoever recorded this for cobbling together a route out of what was available, but these trails are better left for horses than runners.
