1.9 mile course description:  start just above the Ranch House in the parking lot before the Wilder fields.  Run past the Ranch house and make a right onto Wilder Road.  Run up Wilder Road and make a left onto Quarry Hill Rd.  Take Quarry Hill up to Big Rock, where you will make a right and run straight to the end to loop around, heading back down Quarry Hill Rd.  From Quarry Hill Rd, you will then make a right onto Big Leaf Rd, and then another right onto Wilder Road, which you will take down Wilder Road, making a left at the Ranch House and then back up to where the start was for the finish.

5 mile course description (map is incomplete due to undeveloped maps online):  start just above the Ranch House in the parking lot before the Wilder fields.  Run past the Ranch House and then make a left on Wilder Road. Run up Wilder Road and continue straight up and down Wilder Road until you get to Dairy Creek Road, where you will make a right and run around the loop. Out of Dairy Creek Rd, you will make a right, cross the bridge, and find a water station.  Grab a cup of water, then cross the bridge and continue straight along the trail to Edgewood Rd.  At the crossing of Edgewood and Lost Valley, you will turn around (there will be volunteers instructing you where to go) and head back onto Wilder Rd, up and then all the way down, curving to the left to make a left at the Ranch House to run up to the finish.
