Course Info: A trail runners dream come true with amazing diversity of hardwood, and softwood forested land mixed with river, meadows, and stellar scenic lake and river vistas.  Mostly single track trails with built in passing zones to avoid bottle necks.  The trails were built with trail ultra-marathoners in mind, providing a few challenging inclines and declines and frequent water stops.
