COURSE INFO

This mountain course was designed with the all-around rider in mind. The course offers climbers a chance to show their skills as they leave the start line and ascend to a high point on Sam’s Knob Rd. From there the descenders will take over leading the charge through stunning aspen groves back to the finish area. The course is a 4.8 mile loop with 750 feet of climbing per lap. Running counterclockwise, the course starts and finishes on Fanny Hill. We are extremely grateful to Julie Hardman and Taylor Smith for their course and venue consultation.
