Jerry Stage 6K "SAMPLER" Course - This race starts on the same dirt road as the 22K but turns right onto singletrack within a 1/2 mile and then meanders through thick forest before crossing the same dirt road into a sand pit, back onto singletrack trail, then left onto more dirt road, a right hand turn into the woods and finishing on grassy field. For the race, the course is well marked with flagging and signs.
