About the event

Let's get some night trail miles! We'll be running the 4.75M Checkered Loop for the Wild Goose Trail Festival. This is a no-drop event - all paces of runners are welcome. Headlamps (or waistlamps) are required. Sunset is at 8:30pm so you will get great practice with transitioning from dusk to dark. The Checkered Loop is the most mellow and has the easiest terrain out of the three loops for the Wild Goose. No big climbs or descents and no technical sections! Please be aware that there is wildlife in the woods! There are bears at Wawayanda State Park (we had several runners/hikers see a bear during the Wild Goose last September). We will be staying together in a group so it is unlikely that we will come across a bear during the run.

Please read the parking directions carefully: Okay, here’s where you really need to read the fine print and pay attention. The address to the main entrance is 885 Warwick Turnpike, Hewitt, NJ. This will bring you to the entrance on Warwick Turnpike, where the park office is located. This entrance will always be open. This is the only way you can enter the park. PLEASE look at your phone GPS to make sure it is taking you to this entrance and not the Auxiliary Entrance. If you are unsure, you can also plug in the "Warwick Drive-In Theater" to make sure you get on Warwick Turnpike. The park entrance is a few miles from the Theater.

The Auxiliary Entrance is located at 120 Wawayanda Road, Highland Lakes, NJ. This WILL NOT BE OPEN! When you enter the park through the main entrance on Warwick Turnpike, follow signs to Wawayanda Lake/The Beach. It will take about 5 minutes to get there from the entrance on Warwick Turnpike.
