TRYON FARM TRAIL

The TRYON FARM TRAIL 5/10/50K RUN is located in Northwest Indiana one hour from Chicago. The course is a 10k loop through rolling native prairie grassland, towering beechwoods, and sloping dunes. Approximately 60% of the course is on wooded single track that follows the existing deer path. The remainder of the trail brings you through a protected native prairie grassland.
