Macedonia Trail Race routes

The 7.25 mile race starts on Macedonia Brook Rd., near the ranger station. Runners will proceed south until reaching the blue-blazed trail entrance on the left. The first 4/10 of a mile is on the road to help spread out the runners before entering the single track. Runners will then run the blue trail in the counter-clockwise direction. The first section of single track is not super steep per se, but it’s a grinding climb until the first major descent just over 2 miles into the race. From there it’s rolling with some pretty technical sections of singletrack with a few short road crossings. A little before mile 5, runners are faced with the challenging climb up Cobble Mountain and it’s amazing viewpoint to the west, where on a clear day, you can see the Catskill Mountains in NY. From there it’s a long technical descent back down to a left hand turn onto Macedonia Brook Rd. and a quick sprint finish on the grass near the pavilion.

The 25K course will consist of 2 loops of the 7.25M course, plus a small out and back at the beginning of the race. The 25K course will have 3500'+ of elevation. The 50K course will be a 3 loop course utilizing some additional trails in the park, but will include 3 trips up and over the famous Cobble Mountain. The 50K course will have 7,000'+ of elevation.
