COURSE: Much of the course is on flume trails dug by hand during the gold-rush days. The course is 10 miles of singletrack and fireroad with about 1400' of climbing. It uses some of the best most fun section of the Lemurian, without the nasty parts.
One lap for beginners, two laps for sports, three laps for experts & pros. It's a fun and challenging course, without being too brutal or too scary...beginners & pros will love it!
GOOD NEWS! There will be a new section of trail at Orofino Gulch! (The ditch of death). It will all be ridable!
