Details below kindly submitted by Lynn Golemon, Trail Manager

The trail contains about 1 mile of pavement each way – to get from the Ruritan (base camp) to the trailhead, and from the trailhead back to the Ruritan. It contains about 1/3 of a mile of pavement during the race, just before stop 3.

The trail contains less than 2 miles of gravel road.

The rest of the trail is on either one track or two track woodland trails, with a few small field crossings.

I put this trail together, and after over 30 years of competitive horseback trail riding all over North America, I would say we have some of the most beautiful trails in the country. I moved here 15 years ago because of the trails.
