Course Description

Both the 10K and 19K courses will start at the Friends Shelter. The challenging 10K course will loop around Blue Mound State Park, to the bottom of Pleasure Valley, up the scenic Weeping Rocks trail, and on to the Top o' the Mound and finish The 19K course has all that, plus a trip to the East Mound (Brigham County Park) and back on the beautiful Overlode Trail. Both courses provide plenty of challenges and scenery, including ski trails, single-track, some mud (we hope), and a climb to the top of Blue Mound.
