This course follows the perimeter trail of the Crossroads property, through the coniferous woods, over the wooden bridge north of the Hanson House historical site, and to gravel upgrade beside an old orchard. Runners will head north on grassy trails past the Stonecipher Astronomy building and will follow a trail around Crossroads’ original 53 acres.
