Course Maps and Safety

Dark Blue is the 5K Route Light Blue is the 1 Mile Route

Please note that these routes are a mixture of surfaces. The 1-mile fun run/walk is mostly trail (earthen, crushed gravel), and the 5K incorporates those sections with the paved trail over the dam. Please note that there is two-way traffic on some sections of the routes, participants should “stay to the right” at all times. 

Strollers are allowed (though usage may be difficult based on some terrain depending on the ruggedness of your stroller), and participation with dogs, bicycles, hoverboards, etc., all prohibited.

Thank you for your cooperation.
