Starting Location: Highway 94, approximately 1.25 miles south of intersection of Hwy D & Hwy 94
Parking Instructions - Due to the limited parking space at the main trail head, we will plan on meeting at the giant parking lot near the Hamburg Trail at 6:40am (7293 Missouri 94,St. Charles, MO 63304). We will leave from this lot promptly at 6:50am to drive over to the main lot. Leaving the parking lot we will make a RIGHT on Highway 94 and the just a little ways down the road the main trail head lot is on your LEFT (gravel lot).
See map below.
Those going SHORT and MEDIUM will both run the Clark Trail in a CLOCKWISE manner for the first loop. Short course is done after that. Those going LONG will start with them but after about 1.5 miles in you will turn LEFT to jump on the Lewis Trail for the next 3.5 miles before rejoining the Clark Trail and finishing the same as the rest, so running in a CLOCKWISE manner as well.
Those going MEDIUM and LONG will head out for the 2nd loop and both be running the same route...from the parking lot head back out the way you just finished only shortly after a 1/2 mile in you will veer off to the LEFT to take a dirt/grassy path which will spit you out on the Clark Trail at roughly 2 miles out from the finish, turn RIGHT once back on that and then finish the same way you did for the first loop. Both are done at the completion of this loop.
