Rough Creek Trail Run is set on the ruggedly beautiful grounds and private property of Rough Creek Lodge & Resort just outside the town of Glen Rose, Texas.

This course gives you a little of everything that Texas trails can offer:

steep ascents and descents for a bit, rolling hills for a while, and flats to open up and run your heart out.
well-groomed non-technical trail and rocky, rugged, technical sections too!
The 3 more technical miles are a featured section of the course called the Rusty Crown.

This race experience will create awesome memories for you as you lace up and hang out with the rest of this amazing trail community. Get ready to run!

The race takes place on the single track trails that are property of the Rough Creek Lodge and Resort in Glen Rose, Texas, located southwest of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.

We are here by permission from the landowners, the Rough Creek Lodge, which is located onsite, so please, let's all be on our best behavior so they want us to keep coming back! No littering of any kind.

For GPS, use the address 5165 County Road 2013, Glen Rose, Texas 76043 to map to get to the general area.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Putting the address simply in Google Maps will take you past the turn to the Lodge. Please use the map and directions on this site:

Plan extra time – it will take you 15 minutes or so once you turn off Highway 67. The lodge is set back several miles from the highway, and then once on the grounds of the Rough Creek Lodge, it’s a low speed limit on a dirt road and several miles to the start/finish area within the property.

Here are the directions when driving from the city of Glen Rose (Expect 30 minute drive time from Glen Rose to the Resort):

Drive 10 miles south/west out of Glen Rose on Highway 67.
You will drive up a big grinder of a hill and will see a Picnic Area sign on your right.
Slow down now! You will also shortly see a big Rough Creek Lodge sign.
Take a LEFT on County Road 2013. (There is no stop sign or stop lights) It can sneak up on you.
Drive 4 miles on County Road 2013.
You will see a big Rough Creek entrance gate on your right.
Turn RIGHT onto property and drive 3 miles within the property. You will then see the Lodge on your right.
Parking and race start/finish will be on your left. Shortly after driving by the Lodge, turn LEFT on paved road that leads to the cabins/pavilion/church/start/finish.
