2-mi loop just smooth enough to trail run. Part of yellow trl (on way to Bear Rock) must be walked. Long loop run can be made around Kakeout Res. (clockwise yellow, white, blue (Mennen), white, blue (Mennen again) and yellow (down Cat Rocks and back to Kincaid Rd).

Vestiges of mine activity, old ruins may be viewed. Very Nice.
