The 12th Annual RRRC Trail races formerly called the Swinging Bridge Trail Runs. The name was changed because the course changes no longer included the Swinging Bridge.
The trial is designated a "wilderness trail" by the State Forest Department. It is challenging, not because of elevation, but because there are significant "blow downs" to run over, around and through. There are also a dozen stream crossings that will be ankle deep or knee deep depending on recent rainfall.
Also be aware that if you don't pay attention you "will" go off trail, at least briefly. It's marked with blazes and some signs, but still challenging to see the many turns.
