Max Fierek's Duluth Hard Enduro Course! Finally released! Prepare your self for one insane day of killer trails!

Important Notes:

- Trailforks has a tendency to over exaggerate elevation!

- All stages will be well marked with tape and Yellow arrows. There will be minimum marking on the transfers so make sure you're checking trailforks regularly!

- Keep in mind the trails are not shut down for the day so you may encounter other trail users. Do your best to be respectful!

- Aid Station is in the Twin ponds parking lot immediately after stage 4, additional aid available at Spirit Mountain

- When you finish a stage ride through the system at the finishes have a long range and we do not want people stacking up at the finishes tagging multiple times.

- When you initially get to Piedmont for stage 6 the first transfer is up N 28th Ave W not the Duluth Traverse
