Good easy hike. A favorite of mine

Parking at North Junction via Zoom, a narrow one laner, but in good shape. Good thing nobody else was stupid enough to be hiking in all the smoke. Including Malory and the connector portion of Waterbar Heaven it was 6.0 miles.

Great trail. Lots of exposure though due to recent forest fires so shade is few & far between. Go early in the morning & bring more water than you think you need if running in July or August. There are some emergency rations in the geocache box at the top of Russell’s Butte if you’re in a real crunch. The trail was great for running. It was single-track in many areas but still wide with good visibility. The final third of Mallory’s Trail to the summit of Russell’s Butte is pretty steep so if you’re trail running leave some gas in your tank for that.

Great day spot to hike and see some beautiful views. Mallorys trail takes you on a small out abd back to the top where it opens up and it totally worth the detour. There are wild flowers in bloom everywhere making the whole trip very enjoyable. Bring water if you will be going on a hot day! not a lot of shade is only recommendation.
