Description

This course has it all, from wide and smooth doubletrack trails, to tight and technical singletrack trails and grades from easy and gentle to holy crap this is steep! Views abound along the route and High Shoals Falls is one the most picturesque waterfalls in NC! This course is tough, but rewarding. Please be prepared! Due to length and the climb of the course, experience on long mountain runs with elevation gain is suggested before signing up.
