This trail is surprisingly technical for a race course. The first 4 miles is a fairly steady climb followed by a fun, swoopy downhill.
The next several miles is rocky with some short but steep drops and climbs. There are several sections here that are hike-a-bike for all but the strongest freeride types.
Eventually the trail levels out to a fairly flat fire road for the final 6 miles or so of the race.
