What to Expect:

The McIntosh Run watershed hosts a unique trail experience combining grippy granite whalebacks, views to the ocean, challenging ledges and drops, and lush forest. The terrain is rolling — climbs are short but punchy. For years, trails here have been known to be some of the most challenging anywhere; that’s still the case, but increasingly there is something for almost anyone. This 20km system is evolving rapidly: Come back often and keep your Trailforks map at hand.
