From 5,000 acres of pristine trail running, we carefully selected roughly 15 miles of Appalachian badassery for you and your team. This trail running mecca provides you with some of the most exciting and challenging trails on the east coast.
Located at Big Bear Lake Camplands. Teams camp at the airstrip on site.
This singletrack loop is a classic Appalachian wooded trail where you'll encounter some fantastic views. Known as the Big Pine Trail, this is the intermediate loop in the race. Near mile 2, you'll come to a large grove of towering pine trees, the namesake of this trail. Enjoy the soft cushion of pine needles.
You'll encounter a steep drop as you hug a contour line for half-a-mile before climbing back up for another run through the pines. The trail then rollercoasters along the edge of the 600 escarpment of the Briery Mountains. Enjoy the view through the trees.
