A wintry 3.5-mile run though the snow!

Features Lake · Wildlife

Overview

Join us for a wintry run through the woods during the annual SNOWFEST located at RB Winter State Park. Winter activities and demonstrations from 12-4 include snowshoeing, cross country skiing, snowmobile rides, ice skating, horse drawn wagon rides, ice cutting, ice fishing and other winter fun. Plenty of hot chocolate, coffee, and soups to help warm up afterward while sitting by the fire.

Description

After a short run in the RB Winter campground, exit onto Old Boundary Trail. Enjoy the rolling, snow-covered scenery until you turn right onto Sand Mt Road. Just a short hop takes you to Rocky Corner Trail, where the climbing starts. A quarter mile and a couple hundred feet of elevation gain on Rocky Corner takes you to Old Tram Trail, where you turn left. This is a bit rocky in summer, but usually under soft snowpack at race time in February.

Follow to Boiling Spring Trail, where you'll bear right. This is a fire road at this point, so enjoy the easy footing and slight decline for a half mile to McCall Dam road and turn left. Run up McCall Dam Rd. a few hundred yards and turn left onto Overlook Trail. After 0.5 miles, you'll exit at a powerline. Enjoy the view, turn left, and follow the powerline a short bit before turning right—back onto Boiling Spring Trail. Now it's 0.5 miles of fast downhill running...and slipping...and sliding...back into the campground and the finish line.
