This quiet, scenic trail is in the midst of a large residential community.

It pays to look at the map beforehand. There are lots of other trails that intersect with this one.

I started at the trailhead near Sand Creek Elementary School. I ran 2 miles up and back. There wasn't a flat part to the entire trail.
