Description

At just over 6 miles, this is one of the most classic climber runs at the park. A great way to keep your training up by doing the run after a day of pulling down!

Start at the Ice Age trail sign on the north shore of the west bluff, where the trail starts from the small parking lot on the north shore entrance road.
Run south on the West Bluff trail and join the South Lake road. Run the road east to the CCC trail (do not cut off the south shore beach). Up the CC trail to the top, turn left and go to the Potholes trail. Down the Potholes trail, then a right on the Grottos Trail to the Balanced Rock trail. Up the Balanced Rock trail to the top.

From the top, catch your breath and take your first left onto the east bluff trail back to the North shore. Once running out of the woods and into a parking lot, head straight, then cross the creek at the bridge and run across the North Shore picnic ground and then up a gravel path back to where you started.

Protection

Running shoes with possible micro spikes in winter. And watch out for hikers and boy scouts on the trail! This run is best for non busy times on the bluff, as it uses a few of the most popular trails in the park and can be more of a game of pingpong than running at times.
