It’s a complete out and back on mostly sections of double track and single track dirt trails for the 5k/10k with plenty of rolling hills and lake views with the occasional wildlife crossing. The Half Marathon graduates with a pass through Silver Lake Park at mile 6.55miles and levels out to a flat and fast section out and back before reentering the woods.
