Fairly flat, fast course with some “rolling hills” in the middle. Park at the large parking lot off Merritt Rd. just east of Wiard's Orchards Country Store, walk to the Country Store, and then cross the road to the gate. From there, run through the prairie area of Rolling Hills Park on the new bike trails. Continue to the wooded bike trail, exiting onto Bemis Rd. (dirt). Follow Bemis Rd. east for a mile to Hewen's Creek Park. Follow bike trails in Hewen's Creek to exit onto Hitchingham Rd. Follow blacktop path north to Merritt Rd. Then run Merritt Rd. (mostly dirt) west to return to the start. About 7 miles.
