The first race in the Steep Rock Trail Series, the Steep Rock 10K starts near the entrance to the preserve where runners will begin with about 2 miles of flat terrain on Tunnel Rd., before entering the Steep Rock Tunnel. After exiting the tunnel, runners continue straight until a couple of quick left turns to enter the southern end of the preserve. A long grinding climb up to the high point of the course at the top of the Pinney Loop Trail.

A beautiful descent through the fern lined trail and then it’s back onto the rail trail. A couple of quick up and downs with the last one a gentle descent on Spring Hill Rd. After crossing the new Spring Hill Bridge, runners re-enter the trail to work their way up to the Holiday House on their left. A quick left down a somewhat technical descent and runners are in the home stretch along the river, through the parking lot and to the finish at the horse corral.

This course is starts off easy in the first few miles, but is very challenging in the last ⅔ of the course with several climbs on the awesome, flowy and sometimes technical single track trails of the Steep Rock Preserve.
