This course starts at the intersection of Hauck Hill Road and Bleck Road, and there’s plenty of parking on the side of both roads.
The start/finish is where the trail pops out onto Hauck Hill Road. Then it heads down the road toward the traditional Forest Frolic start/finish and from there, it follows the rest of the Frolic race course. You can of course choose whether you go left at the figure-8 intersection or straight up the hill to run the big loop either clockwise (left) or counter-clockwise (straight). Note that our RunGo directions send you straight up the hill. Scan the FLRC Challenge sign for both the start and the finish.
Turn-by-turn RunGo voice directions are available; you can view them online and download them to the RunGo app on your smartphone (iOS or Android) or Apple Watch. If you’re not familiar with the Forest Frolic course or the Kennedy State Forest’s trails, we strongly recommend that you run with a friend who knows them or use the RunGo directions. Let us know if there are issues with the directions.
For navigational backup, you could download the Kennedy State Forest PDF map to your phone. The AllTrails app also has trail maps in Kennedy State Forest. And here is a straight GPX track if that’s helpful.
