Pisgah Forest, North Carolina

In the inaugural year of this primarily singletrack 50k race, we’re excited to bring you a course with high quality trail and spectacular views through a variety of forest ecosystems. Held in the Pisgah National Forest in the mountains of Western North Carolina this loop highlights some of the best trails in the region with plenty of climbing, rocks, and roots.

The Course
31.75 miles
6,650′ climbing, 6,650′ descending
Elevation Min/Max: 2,159′ / 4,201′

This course is over 90% singletrack with a few miles on gravel roads in the middle. You’ll be treated to the beginning of changing leaves in our beautiful forests and six vantage points to take in the iconic Looking Glass Rock granite dome. You’ll summit 4,000′ mountains, run along steep ridges, cross creeks (mostly with bridges), and cruise alongside cascading rivers.
