The trail system is a good balance of flat runnable sections, plus enough hilly/rocky sections to keep you awake. Each 11 mile full loop has around 731 feet of elevation gain.
The course starts at the pavilion inside the OHV park which sits at a higher elevation than the hike/bike trail system. From the pavilion, the course will descend 155 feet within 1/2 mile on the of the OHV trails to the gate adjoining with the hike/bike trail system. The next 5 miles will be on the flatter/easier sections of the hike/bike trails south of the power lines. The course will then move into the to the more technical/hilly (just under 5 miles) northern part of the hike/bike trails before arriving back at the gate into the OHV park. The return to the pavilion will then follow a different 1/2 mile section of trail back to the pavilion climbing another 155 feet back to the start/finish.
