The course starts in the grassy area just south of the sand pit volleyball courts at Camp Hydaway. Head south and then west to get to Lasso clockwise, cross the creek and take the Lasso connector trail to Trail Too Far. Climb about 2/3 of the way up before taking a right on Lake Hydaway Road. When the road takes a hard right, look for some doubletrack on the left (you have to climb up the bank of the road). Take this doubletrack, complete with jumpable water bars down across Lake Trail and cross the wide bridge to join Falwell Rd. Take a right on Cut 'Em Off Pass and follow that all the way until you go around a gate just before Monogram Road. Take a right on 1971 and go around back to Monogram Road. Climb Monogram Road to the intersection with Valley Valley View Rd. Look for the doubletrack climb up Playground (just to the right of the trail map kiosk). Descend Playground, cross Valley View Rd., hang a right on Horton's Loop (look for the line that drops over a rock ledge before taking a right turn). Stay on Horton's Loop for a hundred and fifty yards or so before jumping back onto Valley View Rd. Take a left on the singletrack up to Idiot's Run and take a right on Idiot's Run. At the top of the mild climb, take a right onto Killer Bees. Cross Valley View Rd. and continue on Killer Bees all the way to the bottom. Take a left on Oaks Way. At the pile of old bridge building material (set up as a jump currently), take a right on The Great Escape. Climb Great Escape, across Champion Road, and descend down to cross Raccoon Alley. After a short, rocky run down Great Escape, take a hard left to cross the creek onto the end of Idiot's Run. Take a left onto Dirty Ridge (if you reach the stairs to the right of the dam, you've gone too far). Cross the creek, climb the left side of the dam, and follow the road back to Camp Hydaway
