The Ward Legacy Trail is an ATV trail that winds through pinyon and juniper trees and climbs for a scenic view of Steptoe Valley and a view of Mount Wheeler at Great Basin National Park!  The trail connects to a dirt road that will take runners back to the Riparian Loop Trail to the Finish Line. There are a few short steep climbs and downhills.  The trail consists of packed dirt, loose gravel, to some rocky loose areas.  The trail will not be closed to ATV's but it is not anticipated there will be much traffic event day.

The Riparian Loop Trail is hiking trail with gentle rolling terrain along  Willow Creek.  This 2 mile trail run is great for beginners and kids!  

Start/Finish Line/Onsite Registration will be located at the Day Use Trail Area at Ward Charcoal Ovens State Park.
