From the track, runners and walkers go three quarters of a mile around the COS campus and enter the scenic and wooded two mile "Bear Trail." The 5K course concludes with a victory lap around the track. A small section of the Bear Trail is single track and large wheel running strollers are recommended for parents with small children. Wheelchairs are not recommended. No bikes, roller blades or pets please. In the event of accumulated snow on the ground at College of the Siskiyous, the run/walk will be held at Hoy Park in Lake Shastina. Please watch for e-mail and Facebook updates.
