This 12 mile loop runs clockwise this year with ~1,100′ of elevation gain per lap. The 4′-wide trail offers ample passing opportunities. Linking together a bit of the Phillip S Miller Trail and the Ridgeline Open Space Trail, this rollicking course offers panoramic views of the Rocky Mountains to the west and the town of Castle Rock below to the east. Fast punchy hills, green oak and pinyon pine provide an exciting landscape to race through.
Marathon competitors will complete four laps (women three), XC competitors race one, two or three depending on category and age group. Juniors ride 7-12 miles depending on age. Racers leave the start at the MAC and proceed over the new pedestrian bridge crossing Wolfsenberger Rd to the existing Ridgeline Course, then back again to the finish.
