Course Descriptions:

Stage 1 - Upper Valve House - A 15 minute climb from Scout Mountain campground takes you to the start of stage 1. To start it off, drop from the East Fork Mink Creek into a wide open, kamikaze downhill on an old two track. Get on the pedals and stay off the brakes! Ruts, stream crossings and plenty of room to work with should get the early morning blood flowing. Stage 1 will end just before a short climb. Transfer up a quick steep pitch and get ready for Stage 2

Stage 2 - Windago - After a 5 minute transfer, Stage 2 will take off down the tight, twisty singletrack of Windago. Navigate the big rut at the top, stay out of the creek, and rail the countless natural berms through the pine trees. Towards the bottom get back on those pedals and pump your way through the moto whoops to the finish.

Stage 3 - After a longer transfer up Crystal Summit Road, get ready for the fastest stage of the day. One of Pocatello’s most popular downhill’s, Corral Creek is the perfect mix of rocks, roots, tight berms, and wide open sections. Advice? 5 minutes of full gas, no brakes, full enduro.

Stage 4 - After another good transfer up West Fork, arrive at the pink gate leading into Gibson Jack. This will be the longest stage of the day, with roughly 10 minutes of non stop action. Thanks to local volunteers and BLM fire crews, the brush has been cut back, sight lines opened up, and Gibson is ready for a thrashing. Stage 4 starts off through a twisty meadow, flows in and out of the trees through relentlessly rocky, often exposed, off camber sections, and finishes with an all out sprint to the expo area (and the beer). Watch for several sneaky corners in the middle of the stage. Pedaling will once again be a necessary evil, but be careful of the pedal strikers hiding in the tall grass…

Barbed wire fence is down and covering a few sections of the trail requiring a walk around. The vegetation along the trail is overgrown due to limited use. Do not recommend until some trail maintenance is done.

Lower trail wide and sides mowed. New bridges across the creeks. Trail to Elk Meadows is single track, plants and grasses are tall and fall into the trail.

Minor erosion (trail braiding, small ruts developing, brake bumps) typical overgrown vegetation isn't a big deal. however, about .50 above the bridge over North Fork of Gibson, the trail is (was) covered with grass and under that grass, part of the trail has eroded (gibson mountain side). im sure a few bikers have hit it and ended up on the ground. it sent me flying when i hit it while running. i tore out the grass that was hidingthe trail, but still a hazard to watch out for.
