AES: Prescott Monstercross (Short)
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 Again this year we have a shorter and longer options 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 short loop this year is a bit more demanding than in past years, and the long loop is less demanding than the megaMonster from the past few years.

The basic details:

“Short” Loop

62 miles of mostly singletrack – many of the miles are fast and flowy
8,000 feet of climbing
Expect the ride to take between 5.5 and 9 hours
Water is available at the Willow Lake Dells boat launch, the Cayuse Trailhead in Granite Basin, and White Spar 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.
