Overview

Voted as one of the most loved Mountain Junkies races (it was voted most hated too). This is a great race on a tough mountain.

Description

The course will corkscrew around the mountain as you climb to the top and will end with a long downhill to the finish. The start will be at the trailhead for the Star Trail. Once on the Star Trail, the trail will intersect with the Fishburn Parkway where you'll take a left for one mile on the asphalt road.

At the intersection with the Mill Mountain Spur, you'll head right onto the Monument Trail. This will take you to the old road up Mill Mountain. From here, you'll climb up the old road to the Big Sunny Trail and then onto the Riser Trail.

Here you'll come to the Ridgeline Trail. This will take you up to the Star Overlook and then down the Star Trail for a screaming fast, and in many places rocky and rooty, downhill, back to the finish at the Star Trail trailhead.
