Softball Valley to Pavan Park is 9 km.
Exit east up Gun Range Hill and follow their fence around the gun range and then up Ryan’s Hill. Turn left/west at the top and run the Roller Coaster down to the dog park. Cross the road and take the trail above the dog park to the Alexander Park hills (*this hillside trail is now shared with the southbound runners on Leg 5 to avoid the dogs). Continue north and climb and descend the hills to drop down at the Alexander bathrooms. Travel west on the shale pathway for only 100 m and take a right/north onto single track. If you go too far you will hit Leg 5. Enjoy the Hardieville Hills to Pavan Park Aid Station (mandatory check-in).
