2017 Course Description from our trail guru Matt:

Starts with a steep slog paralleling several lengthy flights of stone steps before traversing up the Rabbit Hole and through a cavernous stand of spruce. It then cuts up an ancient forest road cutting through several Green Trail Switchbacks before winding through La Gran Aventura which climbs to a plateau atop South Hill. It follows a sinuous path through aptly named Labyrinth before emerging  onto a isolated stone hut with panoramic views of the Green Mountains, a short respite before abruptly dropping into the technical terrain of Devil’s Throat followed by simultaneous elevator chutes.  A narrow and at times gnarly route traverses the backside of the mountain in the form of Bubba Trail. The course re-crosses the ravine returning via Riverside Run, Crazy Mazie and Muddy’s Hut.

Lodging:
Amee Farm, Trailside Inn, Swiss Farm. Camping is available at many state parks in the area that offer camping and lots of smaller motels and B & B’s as well.
