This race is crazy full of waterfalls! The point-to-point course is nearly all super fun single track trail. There are so many waterfalls we lost count! The course goes right past Wahkeena Falls, Fairy Falls, Multnomah Falls, Oneonta Falls and more, plus runners will go right under Ponytail Falls! The route is mostly in deep old forest with some enormous trees and moss everywhere. We are certain elves and gnomes live here. Occasionally the trail will pop out of the trees and you'll get great views of the river and the mountains towering above it. 

This course is beautiful, but it is also very challenging. The race boasts approximately 6,000 feet of elevation gain and much of the trail is very rocky and slippery. This is not an entry level or beginner 50K and our cut off times are strict. We highly recommend that you have completed other mountain 50Ks before attempting this race.
