Mahomet Trail Course Description

 

The full point to point loop course is 26,155' or 4.95+miles (245' short of 5 miles). 

 

A few people have asked for a description of the 5 mile course so here goes: 

 

·         1-Start at the intersection of bike path and trail heading downhill into the woods.

·         2-Stay on the "lowest cut and worn" path. 

·         3-Turn right at all intersections of the worn path (5 EXCEPTIONS NOTED) 

·         EXCEPTION 1 - .9mile at bottom of hill go straight at arrow, over broken concrete sections. 

·         EXCEPTION 2 - 2.35 mile turn left at arrow, head uphill. 

·         EXCEPTION 3 - 2.45 mile turn left at arrow, near top of hill. 

·         EXCEPTION 4 - 3.25 mile go straight at arrow, over broken concrete sections. 

·         EXCEPTION 5 - 3.27 mile just pass concrete sections, turn left at arrow, go over the drainage ditch (jump, don't use the little wooden bridge) 

 

DIRECTIONS to Mahomet Trails (may sound difficult but Mahomet is no Chicago) 

 

 

Via I-74 West from Champaign

 

1. Take I-74 West, and get off at the exit for Rt. 47, about 10 miles west of Champaign. Head south (left) at your first opportunity. Go under the highway until you hit the first stoplight, which is Franklin St. Turn right on Franklin.

 

2. Follow Franklin uphill to a stop sign. Turn right and go to next stop sign. Turn left onto State Street. Go straight at the next four-way stop. At the intersection (stop sign) just past Mahomet-Seymour high school turn right (north) onto Crowley Road. For the trail race, registration and check-in will be on the west side of the high school -- you will not be able to drive across the interstate overpass. At other times, go over the interstate overpass, and watch for the bicycle sign on the right, and turn right (east) just beyond the sign to the parking lot, where the trail begins.
