Event Details

Just a little over an hour from the northern suburbs of NYC, in the northwest hills of Connecticut, lies one of the best-kept secrets in trail running around! If you are ready for a new challenge of some awesome trails, then the Steep Rock Trail Series brought to you by Steep Endurance is for you! In cooperation with the Steep Rock Association, the Steep Rock Trail Series gives runners a chance to experience the idyllic trails of the Steep Rock Preserves in Washington, CT. Each preserve and race offer its own sweeping viewpoints, lush forest single track trails and hillsides, babbling brooks and streams, old rail beds, rural landscapes, and of course the ever-present New England fall foliage. With each subsequent race, runners will progress from a 10K up to a Half Marathon.

In the second race of the series, the Hidden Valley 15K, runners will get to experience the beauty of the Shepaug River, lookout summits of the valley below, the quartz mine, and the iconic Thoreau Bridge at the entrance to the park. The 15K course is gentle rolling in nature, but still has its challenges with plenty of single track and a few short steep climbs to lookout points.
