About NATRA Blog

This page is meant for folks to post their thoughts on the Saturday group run. I (Neil) will post a blurb about who showed up and where it was held. From there, I hope that other runners will share their thoughts since we often have different experiences on the same run. Enjoy!

Cibola Pass, Jordan, Soldiers Pass, Brins Mesa Loop

On a warm and sunny day, five of us (Doug, Carol, Bruce, Susan, and
David) ran the Cibola Pass--Jordan--Soldiers Pass--Brins Mesa loop
trail. This is a great running trail with some steep but short climbs
and an incredible view from the top of Brins Mesa. It is a 5-mile loop
but with the spur trails can easily be extended to 8 miles. The last 2
miles are an easy downhill cruise back to the trailhead. Everyone agreed
this should become a regular NATRA run.

Sedona celebrated St. Patricks Day on Saturday with a parade down Jordan Road, our access road to the trailhead. After zigging and zagging
through the neighborhoods we were finally able to get around the parade
route and to the trailhead. And we had coffee afterwards, of course!
