WXT Ultra Description
Formerly the Trails4Tails Fest 50K has branched off to be its own event! Same course as the T4T with a 1 loop 25K+ added. WXT starts and ends in Washington Crossing Park, NJ near the Visitor Center. The 25K+ is mostly single track with 8.5 mile in Washington Crossing Park, short road sections and a great finish on the historic Continental Trail. The 50K starts with the same 8.5 miles as the 25K+ Then travels across Church Road into the State side of BaldPate to connect to Pleasant Valley rd. From Pleasant Valley rd and head around the Howell Living Farm via Valley rd to the Dry Run Creek Trail. This is a beautiful short punchy trail that leads you to the Rock Hopper trail and the Aid Station where you cross rt. 518 to access the trail head for Rock Hopper. Rock Hopper is the most technical section of the course.
This year we will go out and back entering on Blue crossing the creek and picking up Red heading out to orange, crossing the power lines and turning around at the road and heading back the same way you went in. Once you exit Rock Hopper, cross back over RT. 518 you will head back to Washington Crossing the way you came.
There will be Aid at the Nature Center in Wash. Xing Park, near the Pleasant Valley Rd. lot BaldPate, & at the Trail Head to Rock Hopper at RT 518. 50K Cut-offs: The cut off to get to Rock Hopper is 4 hours or 11:30am The final cut-off point is out of Rock Hopper in 2 hours 45 min. or by 2:30pm Proceeds benefit the Washington Crossing Park Association.Nearby Accommodations: Courtyard by Marriott Ewing Princeton (609) 771-8100
