Elk River Hiking Trail, just outside of Independence, KS. Accurately measured forest trail winding through unique limestone bluffs, rock formations & picturesque vistas. Mostly single-track, very rocky, no long hills.
Race headquarters will be located in the Outlet Channel Group Shelter (Staging Area, north side of the Elk City Lake dam). There are several different ways to get to the Outlet Channel Shelterhouse depending upon which direction you are coming from. Please click on the link below to open a Google Map where you can get specific directions to the Outlet Channel Shelterhouse. If you have never been to FlatRock before we highly recommend allowing a little extra drive time, especially if you plan on driving in the morning of the race.
Campsites (with & without electricity) & showers are available near starting line (Army Corps of Engineers/620-336-2741). Motels in Independence are approximately 7 miles away (Independence Chamber of Commerce 620-331-1890).
