2015 Assault on Garland Mountain - March 7, 2015 - Race #1 of the Mountain Goat Adventures Trail Run Series

Come experience one of the best trail runs in Cherokee County! Join us as we make our Assault on Garland Mountain and make tracks on one of the most beautiful trail systems in the area. These trails are just a pleasure to run on - a flowy rollercoaster across wooded ridgelines and along gentle creeks in Northern Cherokee County. We have put together a 9.6 mile course as well as a shorter 4 mile course.

Both the 4 mile and 9.6 mile courses are on a variety of terrain, including dirt trails and some old gravel roadbeds. Most of the trail surface is fairly smooth and the trail bed is 4-6 feet wide in most areas to allow for plenty of passing room. The terrain is gently rolling - a good momentum course with a few extended ups and downs. Grades are fairly mellow in for most of the trail, with the steepest push being near the end of the course as runners near the finish.

Join us for our season opener and check out this new gem of a trail system, built and maintained by the Cherokee County Saddle Club.
