Interstate 17 Trail Run route
Mile 0-1: out and back on road
Mile 1-2: semi technical rock strewn dirt trail which leads to a steep long descent on rocky uneven jagged stairs and switchbacks. Once you reach the bottom you'll head north on smooth dirt trail along the river with beautiful views
Mile 2-3: a boulder filled rock scramble where you'll need to use your hands to navigate at certain points ends with a singletrack dirt trail with short yet steep ascents and descents along the river
Mile 3-4: singletrack dirt path takes you directly back into another rock scramble, however this portion is much more runnable, ending directly on the shore of the river
Mile 4-5: as you continue along the rocky shore trail you'll encounter the beautiful waterfall signaling your time to ascend the cliff using various switchbacks and staircases. Once you reach the top it's a short run through wide cross country skiing trails back to the checkpoint/aid station at the start/finish area
Miles 5-9 & 9-13 repeat miles 1-5. Last loop miles 13-17 you'll reverse your path.
