The Capt’n Karl’s Trail Series begins on the hilly, steep and rocky trails of Pedernales Falls State Park along the Pedernales River. Located 9 miles east of historic Johnson City and only 43 miles west of beautiful Austin, Texas. Racers will be enjoying minimal fence line running and lots of challenging, technical and gorgeous single track. Runners will traverse Twin Buttes, Lone Mountain and Butler Mountain as they wind along the new Juniper and Madrone Trails towards Polly's Corral Aid Station. The course continues along the Wheatley and Equestrian Trails back to Wolf Mountain and Start/Finish Aid Stations. Our course features incredible vistas, wooded trails and (seasonal) creek crossings; every runner is sure to find a favorite stretch of this memorable trail.
