With the prospect of winter weather conditions, this course mostly traverses primary roads with wide shoulders. Based on the Beyond Hope to New Hope course, we start this time in the middle at the Milford Bakery, where we head head north, through Hope and points beyond. At Blairstown, we turn around and back through Hope then southern points beyond along the Rt 519 corridor and on to New Hope via Rt 29 and 32. This marks the southern extent of the course and we retrace our path back to the finish in Milford.
