This is the trail that everyone aspires to ride. It’s long, it’s tough, it will stretch you physically, mentally and has left many broken souls!
This long distance route covers 35 km so go prepared with adequate fluids, clothing and bike spares. Expect to come back tired, muddy and exhilarated!
You can expect loose rocky climbs, gnarly descents, stone fly-offs, berms, tabletops and hips on this 35km trail.
Don’t miss the Pink Heifer, Big Doug combo that gives over 4km of continuous sublime singletrack through majestic tall Douglas firs.
Smash it in a oner and feel the burn! So will you be dragging yourself up the final climb, limping down the last descent utterly spent or will you rise to the challenge and tame the Beast?
