It's funny to me that they mark this as a "trail". It's actually a long connected set of trails that is the course for a trail run every year. The marked route is not accurate (maybe it once was, they used to have several different lengths/routes). I uploaded the route for the last few years. It's an amazing, grueling loop run up and over little black mountain down through smuggler's gap and back down city creek. If I wanted a 17 mile hike with some 3500' elevation I'm not sure I'd pick this one, but the run is great fun.
