Overview

High Drive was constructed as a scenic drive, in the early 1900's, and its vistas are still as stunning.

Need to Know

Bear Creek has one of the last genetically pure greenback trout.

Description

The race starts and finishes at Bear Creek Park and runs up to the top of High Drive. Be ready for a steady and challenging climb for the first half of the course as the climb is almost unrelenting until you hit the turn around point. From here, enjoy the downhill - you earned it!
