Both the 10K and 20K 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 20K 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.
We'll put up a map of the course soon.
