JEEP LIFE AND THE GREAT OUTDOORS
"Not all those who wander are lost"
Wow! We sure live in a beautiful place that continues to amaze me. Today, I met up with a few of my Ragnar race runners and headed to the trails in Weir Canyon. Not knowing what to expect, I was thinking maybe I go a little longer when I heard it was only a 4 miler. But was I surprised to find that 4 miles was enough to get my heart racing and my blood pumping.
The trailhead started at the end of a road in the Hidden Canyon estates and all I could see was a hill in front of me. For the first half-mile we were moving upward on a dirt trail until when we finally get to the top. It was hard not to stop and take in the view. And we found ourselves doing this a few times on the run. The first few miles continued to climb upward and each time we rounded a corner, the view got even better. It went for miles and was absolutely stunning with rolling hills and large homes on the top looking over a lake. As we made our way around and moved downward, the switchbacks took us through a cooler route with trees along the side of the trail.
Whether you are a runner, hiker, horseback rider or mountain biker, these trails will give you whatever adventure you need. From steep climbs to fast drops, the trails have it all. You can traverse into many directions and go for miles, or simply take a loop and head back. For our team, the four-mile loop was just enough to get our first training run in for the upcoming Ragnar race in Hawaii.
