Paradise Valley Trail Run routes
At the bottom of Lloyd Trail, the 5k runners continue down and across the Mainline Trail and finish with a tour around the plateau above the start/finish on the Cascara Trail, which starts out relatively straight and then becomes increasingly curvy before rejoining the Mainline Trail for a short return to the finish.
The 10k loop and the second loop of the half marathon continue on back up the gentle slope and back to the aid station at 3.1 miles. The loops then cross the valley that bisects the area on Southern Traverse Trail before diverging and taking different meandering trails that gently descend again on the return toward the finish.
The Half Marathon course is two loops: The 10k course loop, plus a 7-mile second loop that is similar to the 10k course but takes a longer route after the mid-loop split.
The terrain is mostly gently sloping, making for course profiles that are predominantly runnable, with only short steeper slopes.
From the organizerOrganizer's website
Paradise Valley Conservation Area is indeed a trail runners paradise, with mostly gently rolling trails of a variety of widths and speeds, from wide and straight promenades where you can stride out to serpentine pathways that wind between wetland cedar groves and meander up and down gentle ridges. The forest is just as varied and offers an enchanting journey to its visitors.
