The Moccasin Gap Trail:
The Moccasin Gap Trail Run will utilize a series of scenic and challenging trails within -and surrounding- Camp Ondessonk. This rugged 10-mile route will take runners past some of the outdoor highlights of Camp Ondessonk, such as Cedar Falls (the highest free-falling waterfall in the state) and past one of the 11 known Native American Stone Fort sites in Southern Illinois. The trail departs Camp to wind up the ridges and through the sandstone creek valleys of the surrounding Shawnee National Forest eventually joining up with the River to River Trail. Runners will cross rock-bottom creeks, traverse ridge lines on old Forest Service roads, and climb a series of switchbacks -including a stretch of trail boasting over a mile of sustained climb to a historic U.S. Forest Service fire observation tower. There will be three water/snack stops along the trail.
