New HUFF 50K 2005 Trail Map

Map prepared by Jerry Diehl and Bob Berger. Course is accurately measured at 10.8 miles. (The first loop will be slightly shorter due to the road start not repeated on loops 2 and 3.)

Jerry and Bob have placed mile markers on the course on Sunday, November 20th for those doing training runs prior to December 17th.

Note that the course does not entirely follow the DNR's new Kekionga Trail. The biggest deviation is on the north side when runners are headed back west from Simpson Road (Simpson Road, aka 200E, is the eastern boundary of The HUFF course). Runners will head to the west on the old trail. Runners will not be using the newly created bike trail on that section.
