LOCATION

Wildcat Meadows (18471 Pataha Creek Rd, Walton, OR 97490).  This community facility is a private property venue with residences adjacent to the trail.


DIRECTIONS

Take Hiway 126 to Mile Post #30, which is two miles west of the town of Walton. Exactly at the Mile Post #30 sign is Pataha Creek Road - if you're coming from the Eugene area, turn left onto it, if you're coming from the Florence area, turn right onto it. The turn onto Pataha Creek Road is on a curve, with fast traffic coming from both directions - please watch carefully when turning (both coming to and going from the event). At the turn, there is a sign that says, "Fernleigh" - click here for a SCREENSHOT OF THE TURN. Once on Pataha Creek Road, drive slowly over the railroad tracks, then slowly over the bridge.  About 100 yards after the bridge, there will be a sign to park on the left - you're now at Wildcat Meadows.


START TIME

DISTANCES

The 10K Scramble will consist of a 1 mile loop in the meadows, a 1 mile section on the dirt road, and the remainder on the trails of Timberline West and a hill climb (with several short climbs and descents) on Wildcat Mountain.

The 5K Flat will consist of a 1 mile loop in the meadows, a 1 mile section on the dirt road, and the remainder on the trails of Timberline West, with no climb.
