2018 Howelsen Hill Trail Run
Let the trail races begin!! Challenging trail run on the scenic single track trails of historic Howelsen Hill, Steamboat's outdoor playground. This race is a beautiful loop on Emerald mountain starting cross country on the Bluff's trail, heading uphill on the Lupine trail and finishing downhill via MGM and the Meadow trail to the base of the historic Howelsen Hill Ski Area. The trails of Emerald are beautiful this time of year with abundant aspen trees and wildflowers.
