This is the Mag 7 ride, named after the 7 trails it includes. There are alternate routes but this one is my favorite.

Very fun flowy trails at the beginning and progressively gets harder, finishing with a difficult double black diamond.

Take plenty of food and more water than you think you can drink.

 Those sites gps points are rounded and the points are reduced on import. They use overly aggressive bezier curves to give the appearance of accuracy, while being far from it. The tracks are not a perfect match either, the project site uses an old version that follows the original Bull Run track (since rerouted) and bypasses The Great Escape. That old project route has 402 total GPS points, while the Trailforks track has 1356 points. I imagine the tiny elevation differences between the points add up quickly.

That said, elevation based upon available NASA elevation data is poor unless you are near a big city with 1/9th arc second granularity is available. To test this, I downloaded a ride someone else did of that exact route using their Garmin Altimeter and it recorded 5000 feet elevation gain, while the same track according to google elevation service (way less granular) indicates 2200 feet. A Garmin Altimeter is always going to be more accurate given relative elevation, but actual starting elevation must be correct (or calibrated before start).
