Ramp Romp 5K
Our course is a rugged and scenic loop as it follows an old road through spring meadows and the forest. Run or hike past ramps, wildflowers, creeks, and ponds. The route features gently rolling hills, a serious uphill climb on some rough terrain, and a nice long downhill on smooth(ish) terrain. Your participation funds experiential education and forest stewardship.
