Trail Description: Out of the gate the race makes about a 3 mile climb on pavement up highway 64. This warm-up serves as a good field displacer and pole position before entering into the fast and flowy single track for the next 20 miles. Followed by a grueling fire road loop that alternate between hard-pack gravel and smooth moist dirt. Expect tenacious climbs (over 8,000 ft of elevation gain overall), hundreds of curves, and peaceful mountain streams. Racers will then re-enter the single track for about 9 final miles of the best trails in these mountains.
