FREE GROUP TRAIL RUN ON THE PINHOTI WITH MULBERRY GAP (APRIL 16, 2023)
April 16 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
JOIN US AGAIN FOR A MULBERRY GAP GROUP RUN ON SUNDAY APRIL 16, 2023!
ABOUT THIS RUN:
Today’s run can start right from the Mulberry Gap front gates heading out at 9:30am for a 9.3 mile loop with around 1,200ft of elevation gain and a maximum grade of 13.1 degrees. This loop includes ~4 miles of singletrack on the Pinhoti section 2, and the remainder on lovely tree-lined gravel Forest Service Roads.
Alternatively, you can hop on the 10am shuttle (for a fee) and get dropped off at the start of the Pinhoti 2 trailhead, giving you approximately 4.0 miles on the singletrack and 1.7 miles on the gravel with an elevation gain of ~500ft and a max pitch of 10.5 degrees.
?And then it will be time to kick back with your running buddies on our deck, grab a cold beer or soda, eat some lunch, and enjoy some relaxation on a beautiful autumn day in the Mountains. 🙂 ?
