Event Details

We are returning to Fryerstown, but planning to start from a new Hash House site close to the east of town. This site will provide quicker access to the forest.

This event will have some checkpoints located at sites with historic interest that you might not otherwise come across. They provide stories from the past. Fryers Ridge Forest has excellent spur and gully terrain with open forest vegetation.
