“One of the most spectacular trail races in the Utah desert.”— Matt Anderson
Race - Apr 18, 2020
After hitting the Dalton Wash aid station for the first time, you'll climb over the hill on a singletrack trail for a mile, then head up the dirt road 4 miles to the top of the mesa where the Guacamole Trail begins. There is an aid station near the beginning of the 7.5 mile loop that you'll pass through on your way out and back, then you'll head back down to the Dalton Wash aid station for the second time (mile 30ish).
You'll then cross the highway and start across the desert towards the looming Gooseberry Mesa. You'll scramble up a 1,500 ft ascent to the Goosebump aid station and then head out towards Gooseberry Point. A half mile from the overlook point will be an aid station that you'll pass through on your way out and back from the overlook (mile 40). You'll then hug the south rim of the mesa for a mile or so before heading inland, angling back towards the Goosebump aid station, which you'll hit a second time around mile 47.
From here, you'll take a dirt road just over six miles to the Grafton Mesa aid station. You'll then run north to the end of Grafton Mesa, where you'll drop down off the mesa to an aid station at the bottom of a wash near the ghost town's cemetery (mile 57.5). You'll then head back up the mesa and will work your way back to the Grafton Mesa aid station for the second time, then back to the Goosebump aid station for a third time (mile 68.5)
From here, the 100K drops off of Gooseberry Mesa and heads west, passing through the Virgin Dam Aid station before traversing the desert to the finish line.
