Idiot's Run begins at Five Points and heads north on an old double track trail. It turns slightly downhill and becomes bench cut singletrack before turning up to climb a rocky, rooty section. It follows the top of a ridge line for a few hundred yards. A slight downhill section precedes a challenging switchback climb. From the top of that climb, the trail levels out along another ridge before heading down to the funnest part of the trail. A chundery, fast section of trail crosses Valley View Road before turning into a slalom section through the bottom of a small valley. It ends at Oak's Way after crossing a stream and a small log bridge.
