Just signed up! Went just for Saturday last year and had a great time on the two runs we went on. We also did the easy part of the obstacle course. The kids really liked playing in the creek while we waited for the runs to start. It was really hot last year, hopefully this year it will be like our current weather. A little rain could make those trails a lot more interesting….and messy.
I live close enough just to go up and back, so sorry I can’t recommend accommodations. I wish we could sign up for the trail rides online vs. first come first serve but I guess that is the only way to make sure people are there and are going to participate.
