Rocks! Technical Trail Running

Running on technical trails always gets me super excited. Even just the anticipation on the drive there gets me fired up. One of the great places that I can get to quickly, because it’s close to home, is Crowders Mountain.

It consists of two peaks formed millions of years ago, primarily of saprolite. The surrounding areas eroded away leaving these monadnocks rising above the landscape for us to play on. Thank goodness it’s a state park for us to take advantage.

Running through the woods, trails and across the jagged rocks, I can’t help to think about the Cawtaba and Cherokee native Americans that once hunted this land.
