Before heading back to California from our fun at the 2013 Overland Expo, we decided to do one last run up the Smiley Rock Trail which is located up near the old mining town of Jerome and, good portions of it are a part of the historic, Great Western Trail. Being that we’ve never run this trail before, we talked to a few locals about it ahead of time and unfortunately, must have gotten the information wrong as we ended up running it backwards. Starting on the south end of the trail, we found ourselves crawling our way down Martin Canyon instead of up it. But, for fun, we turned around at the bottom and ran a good portion of it back up as well before cutting out early and heading back home. Click on the link below to see some pics from our trip.
