Rating: Gold based on 9 reviews
Distance: 5.20 miles / 8.37 km
Location: Start: Wachusett Mountain Ski Lodge
Wachusett Mountain - Princeton, MA, US
Attributes: loop, all hills, rough trail
Description: This is a potential alternate route for the Wachusett Mountain Race. It will have the same opening stretch up Mile Hill road to the park entrance. At this point, it will diverge from the original by taking the Donbrowo hiking trail back down alongside Mile Hill Road to Balance Rock Road which is a dirt road that cuts across the ski trails. Follow until you come to Old Indian Trail and turn left. This is a steep hiking trail. Take right onto Semuhenna trail which will bring you to the auto road. Turn right and then an immediate right onto North Road. Turn right back onto Balance Rock Road and follow back across ski trails and just before Mile Hill road, turn left and come down the edge of the ski trail (this is the only ski trail that is not off limits) and run around pond and over wooden bridge into parking lot.

Don't change it back!! Love the single track and all the dirt. A true Mountain race should go up and down!

Training run on the course on 5-5-2010 for fun. Only area where you need some caution is on Donbrowo (what's new?). There is a downed tree across the trail a bit before the exposed blue pipe. Following the exposed blue pipe is a sapling across the trail at decapitation height (if you are 5' 4"). Last, but not least, two sizable and separate piles of horse manure are smack dab in the middle of the trail shortly before reaching Balance Rock Road. Have fun out there - it is awesome!
