WYOBrGRB Courses with electronic punching
Colonel Denning State Park is probably the only mapped area in Pennsylvania that does not significantly thicken up in the summertime. There are a few small areas of barberry bushes, but otherwise it is open woodland. Because the area is in a rather narrow valley, climb on the advanced courses is around or a little over 4%, but the course lengths are slightly shorter than normal.
Blue 7.7 km 335 m 17 c
Red 6.2 km 270 m 14 c
Green 5.3 km 220 m 11 c
Brown 4.2 km 165 m 10 c
Orange 3.4 km 125 m 10 c
Yellow 2.2 km 90 m 8 c
White 1.5 km 45 m 7 c
Course setters: Rob Wilkison - Blue, Red, Green and Brown courses, Jacob Moore - Orange, Yellow and White courses
Parking/registration/start and finish will be at a large parking area and pavillion in the middle of the park. Just at the other side of the lake from the parking area is a swimming area. No matter how hot you get on your course, if you go into the water you will be immediately chilled. Unfortunately, the park campground is closed for renovations.
UPDATE to parking:
"One update - we have just learned that the large parking lot next to pavilion where registration, start and finish are located has been closed by the park a few days ago. Most parking will will be located about a quarter mile from the pavilion. Sorry for the inconvenience."
