Building on the success of the Gristmill Grinder 1/2 Marathon, West Virginia’s most scenic trail run, The Sticks & Stones Trail Run is a point to point 15k trail race that traverses the ridges and gorges of Babcock State Park…. with a slightly gentler route.This race will immerse you in history and the awe inspiring vistas of the New River Gorge. Descend an old narrow gauge railroad grade flanking a creek gorge? Check. Pass a functioning historic Gristmill? Yep. Challenge you with the most beautiful trails you’ll ever see? Uh huh. It’s not easy, (hey, it’s a trail race) but trust us, it’s worth it.

The course is a point to point run… starting at Historic Camp Washington Carver runners will take the Mann’s Gorge Overlook Trail to the Narrow Gauge Trail, up Sewell Rd to the Gristmill then over the river and thru the woods (couldn’t resist) on the Skyline Trail to the FINISH at Mann’s Creek Picnic Area!! The finish area is complete with a picnic shelter, tennis court, volleyball net, playground for little ones, bathhouse and an amazing view!
