50 Miler

All racers will be setting off to complete the first 6 mile loop 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 four way, all riders will go north on Pipe line for less than a mile and take a left through the ponding area to get to Coyote Ugly.  Hook back into Sotol and go north to Newman's Trail and then up and over Northern Pass to the west side of the mountain.  After descending Northern Pass on the west side of the mountain you will encounter the first feed zone.  Riders will take a left (south) on Upper Sunset to shortcut 4 after which all riders will go west a short distance to get on Lower Sunset.  Take Lower Sunset all the way to the parking area near the entrance gate to Tom May's entrance booth.  This will lead you to feed zone 2 and you will begin the long climb up to Mundy's Gap using the new single track to avoid the infamous rock garden.  After climbing the new trail riders will take a left on the jeep road to continue to climb up to Mundy's Gap.  Decend Mundy's gap to Tin Mine, take a right on Blue Moon, right on Mule Shoe, left on Deer Valley all the way down to Tine Mine where you will climb shortly back up to Lazy Cow and take Lazy Cow all the way back to the Round House.  This will be the end of the 35 Mile loop...which actually comes out to be closer to 37 miles.  50 mile racers will now complete the last 13 miles which is described in the 13 mile section.  Make sure you are fueled up with plenty of water as this will be the last official feed zone.  Only the 31 mile loop is included on the map below.  In order to see the additional route you will need to look at the 13 mile loop.  We have not included the first 6 mile loop yet on any page, but it is described above.
