RACE DAY PARKING

There are 4 primary parking locations for the Lake Hodges Trail Fest.

Parking lot “A” holds a very small number of vehicles, so it will fill up very quickly. Parking lot “B” holds about 80 vehicles. Once parking lot “B” has reached capacity, the remainder of cars will be directed to Parking Lots “C” and “D.” If you do not want to wait in line to get in to parking lot “B” you are welcome to park in lots “C” and “D” upon arrival. It’s a very short walk across the fields to get to the check-in and start line.

5K runners and Kid’s Run participants should park in lots “C” & “D” unless arriving early for other distance events.

Attention: To make parking easier for everyone, we ask that you please carpool if possible. It will make your lives easier, our lives easier, and it’s just better for the planet which means greener trails for everyone!
