The half marathon follows the same course as the 12k but after reaching Coyote Hollow continues on the Bonneville Shoreline Trail (BST). You follow the BST taking in great views of Draper City until you reach the Lexie and Ethan Trail. This trail is a gentle climb up to Potato Hill with unique scenery at every turn.
After arriving at Potato Hill Aid Station you will depart for Annes Trail. Once you reach the junction for Lupine Meadows you take it and begin a 2 mile loop. Lupine Meadows is a new foot traffic only trail and it offers incredible views! After you leave the loop you will get back on Annes Trail and head towards Peakview.
Once at the top you reach the aid station at Peakview Trailhead. Descend down the Casper and Phantom foot traffic only Trails where you will encounter dense trees that make for a beautiful trail run.
After you climb up to Ghost Falls Trailhead you descend back down the canyon to Ghost Falls. The section of trail leading to Ghost Falls is my favorite in the canyon, it is amazing! After Ghost Falls you have 2.7 more miles back to the finish.
