This year's race will run clockwise around the mountain. All racers will be setting off to complete the first 6 mile loop, just like last year which goes south on the pipe line road and then up Trench Town to Rock Shock. At the s. end of Sotol Forest, you will head north until you get to a turn off on your right that heads down Boulder Dash back to the round house.
From the round house you take Lazy Cow all the way to Tin-Mine Road. Take a right on Tine-Mine to just past Polecat Alley where you will take a left on a single track trail leading to Cardiac. Climb Cardiac to Blue Moon and take a right. At the four way intersection with Tin Mine, take a left and head up the mountain until you reach the T. Take a left to go up and over Mundy's gap to reach the west side. Fly down the west side of Mundy's taking the infamous scree slope down to the parking lot. Take the road all the way down being cautious of the cars that may be on the road. There will be Park Rangers to help guide you and traffic for your safety. You will cross the main park road and continue to the lower parking lot. From here, take Lower Sunset/Lower Foothills Trail all the way to Northern Pass. Go up and over Northern Pass with caution back to the east side of the mountain. You will veer right at an intersection that will lead you to a jeep road for a very short stretch until you see Newman Trail on your right. Head south on Newman Trail to the jeep road where you will take a left past the submarine tank to a short single track on the right. This will lead you to the ponding area where you will take a left crossing the gas line road and onto Goon's Loop. Take Goon's all the way to the finish! If you are gluten for punishment, you can still do the extra 15 miles to complete the 50!
