TYLER, TEXAS

ECO SERIES - FORESTS

Tyler State Park is home to the renowned East Texas pine forest. These diverse, single-track trails will take you on an adventure through dense forests of 100-foot-tall pines. Be sure to watch your footing as you travel through rolling hills and across snaking tree roots with dense pine needle coverage. This race is an extremely underestimated challenge with the humidity, elevation, and technicality of the trails. You’ll be rewarded with a 64-acre spring-fed lake that you can take a refreshing swim in while you rest and recover post-race. Are you ready for this challenge?
