We like this loop for rainy days or evening runs when you don't want to get too far away from town. The "backyard" loop includes a bunch of short trail connectors between downtown and Peaks of Grassi for a fun and varied 10 km loop.
- Distance: 10 km
- Difficulty: Easy/moderate
- Where to park: Somewhere around Elevation Place
- Surface: non-technical to semi-technical.
- Even if the backyard trails are always right behind residential areas, please carry bear spray. Wildlife sightings also happen downtown and areas like the engine bridge are frequented by elks and bears.
