Course map

The 30k trail course uses the entire 8k course but adds a trip up to Fitton Green Natural Area for some awesome views, incorporating the Mulkey Ridge connector trail each way. The course will be challenging due to the hills, but the views and nice trails will make your work quite worth the effort.
