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 several short steep climbs and downhills. The trail consists of packed dirt, loose gravel, to rocky loose areas. One short section of the route picks its way through a tree cutting. The trail is marked with pink flagging. The trail will not be closed to ATV's but it is not anticipated there will be much traffic event day.
For both routes, RUNNER with DOGS, will line up at the back of the group. See rules for dogs below in Event Details. There will not be a different start time for runners/walkers with dogs.
