If the trails have been calling your name, put the Buck Mountain Mudslinger Trail Run on your calendar. This February 28th run promises challenging terrain and plenty of mud on the trails of Silver Falls State Park. This 6.6 mile race is on both single and double track equestrian trails with significant elevation gain and loss. If you haven’t been to Silver Falls State Park before, expect to enjoy some amazing scenery along Buck Mountain Loop and Smith Creek trails.
This 8th annual Western-themed run encourages cowboy/cowgirl costumes with prizes for the best. After the race you can expect refreshment, food, hot coffee, prizes, music, and awards. Awards will be given to the top 3 overall male and female finishers, along with 5 year increment age group awards.
Since this is at Silver Falls Park in February, all wheel drive vehicles are encouraged, as well as carpooling. There is a good chance there could be snow and ice on the roads, so be prepared. The parking fee and day use fee for the park is included in your entry price.
It’s time to grab those trail shoes and cowboy up!
