    Kelso 2005 Trail Map

    Anyone know where I could find an up-to-date map of the Kelso trail system?

    I am doing a 25Km run at Kelso this coming Saturday (it is a warm-up/training run for the actual race on July 30) and the description of the course is complicated and constantly refers to bike trail names.

    Of course, I will get my hands on the map when I go there, but it would have been nice to have it early so that I can study it and try to remember it for the run. Maybe somebody can point me to it or scan it in if you have it.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thank you for the link. Unfortunately I have seen this link and the map must be old or incomplete since it does not describe a multitude of trails that are refered to by the trail run instructions.

    Not to worry, I shall get the map on Saturday. Cheers!

    So I finally had a chance to visit Kelso this Saturday. About 12-15 runners met in the morning for a training run and did a 12.5 km lap (the organizers guided us). Only my brother and I went for a second lap and got lost bigtime. We ended up doing an estimated 30-31 km in 4 hours. We climbed and descended Glen Eden 8 times during the run. Tough course, especially with all the heat and humidity. The July 30 race should be fantastic.

    From a biking perspective, I was not impressed with Kelso. It has very little single track, much of it beginner-intermediate level. Yes, going up Glen Eden is tough, but even that is on wide open fire roads. I think Albion Hills is much more balance, with lots of expert single track, ideal for XC racing. Mansfield is much better too. Hardwood Hills is superior in every respect.

    I am not knocking Kelso, just giving a personal opinion for those who want a comparison. Trust me, if I lived near Kelso I would be there all the time anyway. It is still a fun place!
