The Intro to Race loop - 10.5k great for adult beginners/intermediate riders, youth and just anyone who’d like to enter the world of XC racing. It climbs up Pond Scum and Ed's Way to a descent down FloJo, the newest addition to the Coutlee riding area

Short Course - The 16K loop is the original outmost loop which includes a challenging climb with a flowing single track descent down Ziggy and JP Cool and a climb out to the finish line.

Long Course - The 39k will include 3 variable loops showcasing the best of all the single track in the riding area. It begins with the original loop to take in Ziggy and JP, the second loop takes in FloJo and the third loop cuts across Cow Trail and down JP Cool and up for the finish.
