AES: Prescott Monstercross (Long)

Race Details:

Prescott Monstercross is an annual Spring ride around Prescott’s world-class trail system. And the route has evolved yet again for 2018! One big loop showcasing the Prescott Basin’s best singletrack, the diverse scenery, the slickrock, the ridgelines, more new trails, and just a little bit of Bradshaw chunk for good measure. The loop this year is harder than the old miniMonster but less demanding than the megaMonster.

The basic details:

75 miles of mostly singletrack (many of the miles are fast and flowy)
11,000 feet of climbing
Expect the ride to take between 7.5 and 11 hours
Water is available at the Willow Lake Dells boat launch, the Cayuse Trailhead in Granite Basin, White Spar Campground, and Lynx Lake Campground (assuming the spigots have all been turned on for the season). Water is also available slightly off-route at the Thumb Butte Trailhead. Download the waypoints file for the locations of these water sources.
The Lynx Lake Store near the end of the route can supply calories for the last climb if you’ve bonked!
