50 Mile (~16,000 ft. elevation gain)
The 50 mile race will start at Boiling Springs Campground about 20 miles north of Crouch, Idaho. You will run 4.4 miles up the Forest Service road to the Silver Creek Saddle aid station and then continue up to the Silver Creek Lookout Tower. Then it’s back down to the aid station and left down the ATV trail to FSR 678 and left past the 50k turnaround to the water stop at FSR 671. Turn around at the jct. of 678 and 671 and go back up to the Silver Creek Saddle aid station – NOT going back up to the Lookout a second time (a change for 2014) – and directly back down to Boiling Springs the same way. From Boiling Springs, you will then head west 8 miles to Skunk Creek Summit aid station on a mix of ATV and singletrack. From there, you’ll go north on the “roller coaster” ATV trail up the ridgeline to the East Mountain Lookout. Then turn around and go back to Skunk Creek Summit AS and then down to Boiling Springs, finishing down the same singletrack you went up earlier in the day.
