Beginner Class Racers will receive a shuttle to the top of Chuckanut Mountain.

Race Stage 1 – Double Black Diamond Trail
From the top of the mountain, riders will push up the trail that is directly across from the viewpoint. From there, riders will go down (riders RIGHT) the Top of Double Black Diamond. Just before the exit of the trail, racers will go RIGHT and go down the original exit of the trail and down to Fragrance Lake Road. At Fragrance Lake Road, riders will turn right up hill.

Transition 1:
Go uphill on Fragrance Lake Road for a couple hundred yards and take a left towards Fragrance Lake. Go through the split rail fencing and take an immediate right towards Fragrance Lake. Before reaching the lake, take a left and go across the wooden boardwalk. Follow that trail above the lake and take the next left up a short climb. The start will be at the intersection where this climb flattens out and connects to Two Dollar.

Race Stage 2 – Two Dollar Trail
The stage will start at the intersection to the Fragrance Lake on the more established section of the Two Dollar Trail. Racers will finish after the last RIGHT hand switchback just before reaching the Cleator Road.

Transition 2:
Riders will ride down Cleator Road .5 mile. Just after the 90 degree right corner, go LEFT on the Interurban trail. If you reach pavement, you have missed the trail. Follow the Interurban trail for 1.3 miles and take the connector on your right and cross Chuckanut drive and back to the Larrabee Campground. Please pay attention when crossing the road here

NOTE: Cleator Road is heavily used by vehicles, so please ride slow and use caution as you descend down it. On the interurban trail, there are many roads and driveways that intersect it (also many other trail users), so please use caution as you ride along it.

Tree across trail on West side of Pass, above Fragrance Lake Rd. When going down it comes up really quick in one of the fastest spots of the descent! It's maybe halfway down from the Pass.
