Bruno's Run Trail


Area Status: Open
Mountain Biker on Bruno's Run Trail

The Bruno’s Run Trail offers a 9 mile (14.48 km) loop ideal for non-motorized uses. Although the trail is not groomed in winter, it does offer a suitable outing for hikers, bikers, and horseback riders who prefer to break their own way. In keeping with agency interim direction, non-motorized trails are not open to eBikes (https://www.fs.usda.gov/visit/e-bikes).

The trail winds its way past a host of small lakes etched in this relatively young glacial plain, taking users over gently rolling country. Further along, the trail runs over foothills, along overlooks and through valleys. The many lakes and streams in the area as well as a variety of trees and other plants make it likely that those traveling the trail will spot wildlife or tracks. If you are alert, you are sure to have an enjoyable outing. Be careful with fire.

Trail Safety: Please keep in mind that this is a multi-purpose trail.

Users should maintain control of their speed at all times and approach turns in anticipation of someone around the bend. The trail is not groomed in the winter, and some areas may be icy or uneven, and you may encounter limbs or trees across the trail. Link to Trail Map
