Course Overview

Featuring a 5.2-mile lap with approximately 800' of climbing per lap as well as a separate short start loop that leaves from the parking lot of the Moonbeam Lodge. After this .6mile start loop to spread things out, the proper mountain biking begins with a rolling traverse and climb up the Queen Bess trail to Raptor road where things widen up again and climb to the courses high point before turning and heading into a grin-inducing descent of almost all singletrack first on Kruzer and then on Serenity, one of the best descents around. The loamy dirt and rooty sections will keep you focused and having a blast before returning to the finish where you will either cross the line, or head left for another lap.
