PAST YEARS 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.
Don’t cut the course.
Snow Shoes are mandatory if there is snow; otherwise trail shoes will be fine.
Sorry, no dogs.
