XTERRA Desoto Trail Run

Desoto State Park

December 02, 2017



Desoto State Park is nestled atop beautiful Lookout Mountain in scenic Northeast Alabama. This mountainous venue is accented by many rushing waterfalls and fragrant wildflowers that will simply take your breath away. Developed in the late 1930s, the hard-working and dedicated men of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) made many natural enhancements to the park that have withstood the test of time and will last for future generations. Come commune with Mother Nature as DeSoto State Park offers a family-friendly atmosphere that holds wonders for people of all ages! This trail run’s distances include 15K and 8K options. These single and double track trails offer a challenging course to both novice and experienced trail runners. It is a course that opens enough for a large volume of entrants, without bottlenecks on the single track portions. It has lots of elevation changes without being overly technical and is set up for fast times at each distance. It is also a great mixture of single track trails, small stream crossings, gravel paths and wooded bridges. This venue has plenty of parking for all participants and a great place for spectators to relax, view the race, and take in the scenery.
