Monkey Hill Marathon


Original Page Here

The Monkey Trail is a very hilly section on the YUTC 50K course in Mill Creeek Park (Youngstown, Ohio). The north end is a “T” intersection just south of Pot Smoker’s Corner.   The route involves three hills, taking you up & down, up over the Love Log, down Pinball Ridge, and eventually at the south end at a paved park road at the bottom of Idora Park hill.
