These runs are getting so regular, I'm just going to start posting up stats. I took the dogs on the 2003-2004 7.5 Mile Course, but early on took the Coal Creek Trail to Quarry Trail, and ran up that - adding some elevation and mileage, but spending a lot more time on single-track trail.
Statistics: Cougar Mountain. From Red Town - Coal Creek - Shy Bear Pass - Deceiver Ridge - Far Country - De Leo Wall - Marshall's Trail - Red Town. 8.1 miles, 1300 feet of elevation.
