“Only for those who want a really tough challenge. 100 miles with 10,000' of climbing.”— Paul Arlinghaus
Featured Race - Oct 18, 2019
The most difficult trail on this section of trails is Walnut, which is on the harder side of Expert rated trails. This trail can be skipped by riding the road from HP to Limekiln. Riders then get a few miles of pavement to recover as they head through the campgrounds towards 10 O'Clock Line. This trail is shared with horses and is a wide doubletrack. Please stop completely and ask for direction if you encounter horse riders.
Next up it the Crooked Creek Trail in Yellowwood State Forest. This is a rocky ad rooty expert level trail. This trail can be skipped by using Miller Ridge and taking a doubletrack down to the lake. Riders can start heading back to the park at this point, but the 75 mile route continues South. This section of the ride goes deep into the Back County and uses double tracks and rugged singletrack trails. Trail D will bring riders back to Crooked Creek Lake, where they can again skip the Crooked Creek Trail or follow the official route and ride the South Side of the rugged Crooked Creek trail.
The route heads back into the State Park. Riders who have had enough can take the paved roads back to finish, or follow the core route which show cases the new Weedpatch Trail and the Hobbs Hollow Flow trail. Riders will then do the North Gate, Aynes, and Bobcat Loops as needed to get 100 miles.
