The Friends of the Oswegatchie Hills Nature Preserve (FOHNP) invites you to the first annual ‘Run For The Hills’ trail run through an amazing rugged forest, teeming with wildlife and filled with beautiful ponds, streams, and rock formations. The course takes you by the beautiful Clark Pond and up to Mt. Tabor, the highest elevation in The Hills (280 ft). All proceeds from the race go directly to maintaining this special place of quiet beauty for future generations to enjoy.
