Overview

Mostly singletrack trail ranging in altitude from 7000 feet to a high point of 11,500 feet. This is Arizona's highest organized permitted foot race! Incredible journey across the Mount Elden and Dry Lake Hills and a traverse across the base of the San Francisco Peaks. The final climb goes to the top of the Arizona Snowbowl Ski Resort with views all the way to the Grand Canyon.
