RACE 6 - KING OF THE ROCKIES - SERIES GRAND FINALE -- August 26, 2001
From the staging area on County Road 50 ride approximately
3 miles to the Tipperary Creek Trail Head (just past the
second cattle guard). Turn left and begin the climb but
pace yourself...it is a long and steady climb. After the
second stream crossing, the trail begins to level out for
a short distance before reaching the top of Morse Pass.
The downhill section that ensues is fast and furious, so
hold on tight.
At the bottom of the pass is St. Louis Creek Road. Turn
right, then immediately turn left onto Road # 159, drop
down, cross the creek, and then climb briefly to the Flume
Trail. Turn left on the Flume and enjoy. This is one of
the best single tracks in the valley. Follow this trail
to a small pond where it becomes Chainsaw.
Prepare for a short but tough climb up Chainsaw. At the
thinned out timber, make a right turn on a double track
trail. This trail intersects with Zoom. Stay left and follow
Chainsaw out to Elk Creek Road.
Continue to the right up Elk Creek Road to the Elk Meadow
Trail two hundred yards ahead on the left. The trail starts
as a double track and funnels into a single track. Cross
the creek and ride on this rolling single track until it
intersects with D2 road.
Turn left on D2, cross the stream, and pace yourself up
a long hill. Many dead end trails intersect with D2 so stay
on the main road. D2 will intersect with D2 Green on the
right. Stay left and continue climbing to where D2 meets
WTB Trail. Veer to you left and ride this famous locals
trail to the intersection with D4.
Turn left on D4 and follow this double track down a rocky
descent to Big Vasquez Road # 148. Turn sharply to the right
up Road # 148 and follow it to the Vasquez Ford. Cross through
the stream and ride about 200 yards to Blue Sky trail.
Turn left on Blue Sky and descend on this wide single track.
At the bottom of Blue Sky, cross a bridge just before meeting
the Little Vasquez trail. Turn left and then quickly right
onto the Ice Hill trail. Stay on this single track until
it joins the Tracks Trail next to the railroad tracks. Turn
right onto Lower Cherokee and prepare for your last climb.
At the top of Lower Cherokee turn left and cruise across
Tunnel Hill Road to the intersection of the Long Trail.
Turn left and descend the Long Trail to the base of Winter
Park Ski Area and the finish line.
