Built by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) back in the early depression years, Paris Mountain is a mecca for outdoor enthusists today.
Just minutes from downtown Greenville, this beautiful State Park is home to a huge trail network and awaiting your arrival in February.
Two course lengths will challenge runners on looped courses. Expect tight turns, low hanging limbs, technical footing, stream crossings, elevation, and whatever else mother nature decides to throw your way.
Be on the lookout for the Mountain Goat as this race is part of the
2013 "Search for the Mountain Goat" trail race series.
No matter which course you choose, plan on a lot of fun and excitement of a great destination and race.
We will start out on pavement, for spacing. From shelter 3 we make our way toward the entrance and get on the trail.
Be prepared to get sprayed by the mist of a rushing waterfall, as the waters from Lake Placid spill over the dam.
A scenic loop around the lake marks our start of our expedition and the Paris Mountain Search is underway.
The next trail is the Mountain Creek Trail, an excellent warmup trail for our trek up the Mountain.
The next trail is "Sulphur Springs". The Short Course will run about half the Sulphur Springs trail until it turns back towards the finish.
If you are on the Long Course then you will climb nearly 1000 feet upward in elevation to the top of the mountain. Once at the top you will wind around the top for a mile(Kanunga trail) traverse the ridge downward, (Brissy Ridge trail) as you loose all that elevation you just worked so hard to do.
At this point you are in a valley and on the other side of the Mountain. From here theres only one way to go, UP! and we mean up . Here you will make your way back up the mountain on one of the Upstates' most difficult sections of trail (Brissy Ridge Hike Only). Rated "Most Difficult", for elevation and technical toughness.
Now you are back on top for the second time and now a smile will come across your face as you realize its only downhill from here. At this point you are only three and a half miles from the finish.
