The 8.7 mile course w 3,566 ft of climbing starts at Creekside base area, begin running up towards Mid-Gad, then head east onto Rothman Way, connecting you to steep Peruvian service road on Peruvian Gulch Trail. Turn onto the Ridge trail feel the burn in your legs with large sweeping views of Snowbird’s Cirque and Mt. Baldy, ending up on Hidden Peak with expansive views of the entire Wasatch Range. Catch your breath and loop around the backside of Hidden Peak and make your way down to Gorilla Pass and head straight up to the Summit of Mt. Baldy, the highest point in the race. Make your way down a steep and technical section of trail, being sure to save enough energy for one more uphill section to the cool refreshing shade and air of Snowbird’s Ski through Tunnel. Now a final mix of dirt roads and single track for the final 3 mile stretch down Peruvian Gulch, single track and roads, passing by Oktoberfest plaza & the Mountain coaster, then into the Finish Line back in Creekside. The race course is located on the Salt Lake Ranger District, Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest.
