Super fun single track when Penitencia Creek trail turns into South Rim trail. A little too much pavement and can be crowded along Penitencia Creek trail. Some of that can be avoided by taking the North Rim trail and connecting to South Rim.

Really good for trail running. Inclines are challenging but not over the top with enough flat areas and declines to keep you going. Trails are well maintained with good visibility. Not to mention the old mines and the reservoir are pretty cool.

Good trail for a run. It can get very muddy in parts after a rain and there's not much shade in the hotter times of year. Best times to be out here are fall and spring.
