Not the official MS Hard XC route.

Trail Forks wouldn't let me save the route put out by 3rd Cost Productions, so I tried to recreate it. This trail is intended to kick your butt. The amp wouldn't cooperate down around the start of Mountain Mist/Family Trail, so there is an extra piece of trail in there, that's not in the actual race. You'll want to skip from Goat Trail to Warpath Ridge, back to the Family Trail, then follow the route from there.
