Cool views all along it, if you are confident enough to take your eyes off your footing.
Need to Know
Everything beyond the first aid station is private land and only accessible for this race.
This is the current course, as of 2018. There are a few extra miles at the bottom of the first half to get the whole thing up to 25k. The course starts by winding around some flat land before crossing through the gate onto private property that is currently only accessible during this race. After the initial aid station, it's a gradual climb on pretty smooth two-track to the second aid station. From there it gets rocky, rutted, and steep to mile 7.7. The road smooths out and the course cuts around below the knob of Pilot Hill proper, then hits you with the final steep pitch to the turnaround where the aid station provides you with a bit of food and drink (and margaritas, if you're lucky.) Tun around and do it all backwards.
The race director brings some of his own homebrew and the rest of the post-race spread is great.
