The 5K trail run crosses mountain streams and offers mild elevation changes of approximately 250 feet on state forest trails and roads. The 10K trail run crosses mountain streams and features elevations exceeding 600 feet over rough terrain, through mountain valleys, and along boulder mountainsides. Both trail runs are family-friendly and guarantee amazing views of hemlock forests.
