RACE 6 - KING OF THE ROCKIES - SERIES GRAND FINALE -- August 26, 2001

COURSE DESCRIPTION

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 local’s 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.
