The Course:

The routes all follow wide, grassy/hard packed trails through the woods. You'll also find some uneven terrain, roots, sticks, rocks, nuts and the occasional hungry squirrel.  Some challenging climbs and great, well-kept, wide grass/dirt paths define this as the Best of the Best location for a true Off Road Trail Race experience.


The 2.3 Mile Open Trail Run/Walk is challenging with a few steep hills and some uneven terrain. It is beautiful for a nice stroll, a perfect stepping stone to a longer distance, or a hard sprint against the clock. Designed to be easily achievable by all and a challenge in its very make-up. (Runners / Walkers)


The 7.8 Mile Open Trail Run 

will test the legs of any peep. Packed with more ups and downs than a roller coaster, this route delivers several steep climbs and great views along the ridge. Runners will be treated to wide well marked paths - great for sudden over takings, arm flailing downhill's, or running casually with a large gaggle of friends. (Runners)
