Everyone starts off running the short course together, covering the flat portion along the river first and then heading up the wooden stairs and eventually making a left turn to head down the Lone Wolf Trial towards the creek crossing, then back to the start to finish the loop. Those going short are done.
Medium and long course runners will head out for loop 2 by heading back out from the start towards the park entrance but take the trail on your right after you go up over the bridge, and follow the Grotpeter Trail all the way up (blue trail markings) and you will run along a portion of what is referred to as "The Rollercoaster" before taking the Midway/Office Trail Connector back down to the road and then finish (trail #3 markers). Medium course runners are done.
Long course runners have one final loop and you will head out along the Lone Wolf trail that is to the left of the bridge near the start. Take this all the way back to the creek crossing and go through then head left to jump on the Grotpeter Trail and cross the road. After that stay to your right on trail #1 to head up the hill, keep right at the top and eventually wind your way over to another road crossing at Ries Rd, stay to your right after crossing and take Trail #2 all the way back down to the trial Office and then finish up at the parking lot. This ends the long course.
