Stone Bridge Caveman 6K Snowshoe Race
Natural Stone Bridge and Caves Park continues the DION WMAC Snowshoe Series this year with a second annual 6K race highlighting interesting features of the 14+ miles of snowshoe trails. Runners will enjoy views of Trout Brook, the southern Adirondacks from the top of Catamount, dark hemlock forest groves, and even cartoons from Gary Larson on "The Far Side" trail. There are 5 "swings" made from retired Gore Mountain triple chairs that can rest the weary hiker. Starting at 990 feet elevation, the race climbs up to 1445 just before the half way mark and then back down - with several flats.
The facilities are somewhat rustic during the winter. There is a pavilion with propane heater, picnic tables, port-o-pot, bon-fire (with iron forged grill baskets to cook meats—bring your own), marshmallows/sticks, bottled water/hot chocolate/coffee (provided—no charge for this event), and a small gift shop available on site. All participants are invited to hike the Stone Bridge Cave Loop Trail after the race to view the LARGEST Cave Entrance in the East and frozen waterfalls (located next to the race start/finish).
