For December’s monthly Trail destination run we will keep with tradition and head to the McKenzie River Trail for the holidays! We will meet at Runhub at 9 AM to carpool to Belknap Hot Springs, and then will get shuttled to two different spots up the trail for a 13, 9, or 5 mile option. The 5 miler will start at Deer Creak and head back to Belknap, while the 9 and 13 miler will be dropped off at Trail Bridge. If you wish to do the 9 you simply will run back to Belknap. For those of you who want to get extra mileage in or more views you will run 2 miles east until you hit Blue Pool. If you have not seen this wonder it is definitely worth burning the extra calories. Afterwards come join us for a soak at Belknap. One hour costs $7, and will be certain to warm your legs up after a brisk run on the trail. Shuttles will be $5 a piece. Cash only please. All levels welcome. Come out and join us for a fun run with friends right before the New Year!
Here are the maps on strava of all three runs:
