I'm interested in running the length of this ridge, either as an out-and-back from one end, or with a bike shuttle. Yesterday I ran the one between Emigration and Parleys, and I had a blast overall, but the bushwhacking near Perkins Peak made running impossible and wasn't super comfortable in running shorts. Looking at the Emigration/Red Butte one on Google Earth, it appears to be a very developed trail for the western half, but hard to see for the eastern half.
Has anybody here been up on that section of the ridge and can say how much bushwhacking there is? Some is okay, but if there's lots maybe i should save that exploration for a trip that doesn't have any illusions about being a run.
Also, on Google Earth it looked like there's a (well, maybe more than one) dirt road or double-track trail in Emigration Canyon that one could use to climb to/from the eastern end of the ridge, but it too seems to fade towards the top. Anybody have helpful experience to share about the best way to/from the ridge on that end of the canyon?
