Join other participants for a scenic trail run of Doe Mountain Recreation Area. The 50K and 25K are run on a 16.4 mile loop. 50K runners will complete two laps. Total elevation gain for one lap is approximately 3,100 feet. The 13K consists of an 8.5 mile loop and shares its whole course with the longer distances. Total elevation gain is approximately 1,800 feet. All courses run entirely on dirt varying from singletrack to multi-use double track. The mid-point of each course is the 60-foot Kettlefoot Fire Tower which offers views of Watauga Lake, Doe Valley, Neva Valley, and (on clear days) Grandfather Mountain.
