  • The first paved mile follows Comstock Bridge Road northeast at a moderate incline.
  • Then the course bears right onto the seasonal and scenic River Road where approximately 1.5 miles are run on gravel surface and runners are treated to lovely views of the Salmon River and the many fly fishermen drawn to its banks at this time of year.
  • At about 2.5 miles, the course passes under an old brownstone railroad trestle then veers sharply left onto the historic Airline Trail for a couple of flat and scenic miles on improved trail bed.
  • Just past the 4 mile mark, another sharp left loops runners back onto pavement for a long, fast, and mostly downhill stretch on Bull Hill Road and back to the finish at the Comstock Covered Bridge.
