Overview

A great tour of the Leadville area on the challenging and rewarding 2017 Silver Rush 50 course.

Description

The 2017 Silver Rush 50 course has a new section a few miles after the turn around at Stumptown. The course will utilize Lake County Road 38 as well as Lake County 1 and 1A; this avoids two-way traffic on the descent on the north side of Ball Mountain. At Rock Garden, the course turns east along a great section of singletrack on the north side of Ball Mountain to gain access to the saddle to the east.
