Elevation data may be highly variable by device or mapping platform, as different software may use various data sources and calculation methods. Our total elevation gain for the stage is a middle estimate based on readings from multiple devices.

Stage 3 consists of two loops, although each loop is completely unique. Starting with the inner loop and rolling out from Community College the route climbs gently on road, allowing you to find your legs. Once on Loggers Lane, you will be on wide singletrack, which gradually narrows as the low angle climbing continues. Eventually, you will get into the narrower singletrack that is characteristic of the hand built trails in the Community Forest, and the flowy trail will give way to some tighter climbs and descents over the “bumps” and the high point of the day. This pattern of short climbs followed by rewarding descents will take you a number of entertaining trails to Checkpoint 1 at Kettle Lake. Some flat and gentle cruising will bring you to the end of the first loop where you will cross over the day’s first climb.

Beginning the second major climb of the day, you will again be on gently climbing singletrack, giving way to steeper sections of climbing and more technical riding on “Hobgoblin”. After some high-speed, sometimes grassy descents on Migor, you will tackle the final significant climb on Bonehead. From this point, you only have a couple short climbs followed by fast and fun descents. The final high speed descent on Roller Coaster will leave you smiling as you roll back into the finish at College of the Rockies.
