Course Description:

Starting in the Village at Northstar you will climb up ski runs and single track to the summit of Mount Pluto then drop down West Ridge to the Perimeter Trail along Martis Camp. The next climb begins on the new Schaffer Trail and then continues up the backside ski run to Mt. Pluto again: 5,000 feet of vertical gain in the first 12 miles. You will then descend 2,000 feet down to the Western States Trail until you reach the Tahoe Rim Trail. This section on the TRT is a long rolling climb around Mount Watson and Lake Watson, continuing across Hwy 267 at Brockway and and then up to Mount Baldy and the turn around. The views of Lake Tahoe are amazing- you will want to take a photo here! Return on the Tahoe Rim Trail to Mt Watson Rd then Sawmill Flat Rd back into the finish line Aid Station at Northstar Village. Repeat this course again for the 100-miler. Incredible views, lung busting climbs and nearly 11,000 feet of vertical gain per loop for a total of approximately 22,000 feet.
