This turned out to be a fantastic day for running in the mountains. Crisp air, sunny skies and fall colors just beginning to stand out. I bypassed Shafer Butte since I've already been to the top several times, but it would make this run a bit more interesting. The first two miles are kind of steep, but beyond that, no real big climbs as this route stays fairly low. Many options exist to extend or connect this trail.
