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 up a FS road to the Silver Creek Lookout tower passing the aid station at the Silver Creek Lookout Saddle on the way, then back down and left to the aid station at FSR 671, then back up to the Silver Creek Lookout tower, and back down to Boiling Springs the same way. From Boiling Springs, you will then head west to Skunk Creek Summit on singletrack and then north to the East Mountain Lookout on a rugged ATV trail. You will run back to Skunk Creek Summit AS and then down to Boiling Springs, finishing off the ATV trail instead of the singletrack you went up.
