Warmed up? Good – because until this point you've actually been headed downhill. Time to to hit the gravel and start climbing. Turn right on County Lane 31. In about 2 miles, you'll turn left Horse Creek Road. Climbing in earnest now, the Big Horn Mountains will appear before you. In the distance you can see what the locals call the "W".
In about 3 miles you'll run into an aid station. We think you're ready for a little more adventure now. Turn around at the aid station and head about a 1/2 mile back and take the trail to the left. A nice hard pack two-track trail will take you up to some truly spectacular views.
After a few miles you've arrived at the "top" of the course and you've gained about 1500 feet. Only about 6 miles until you're home and it truly is all downhill from here. Continue on the course for about 4 miles until you reach US Highway 14. Take a right and enjoy the easy asphalt back to Shell.
Victory is yours!
