Showcasing Northern California's most scenic single track trails, this 50k is both challenging and beautiful. Winding through grassy meadows, towering pines, wildflower-covered hillsides, and fragrant sage, the race features several water-crossings and about 14 miles of banked mountain bike trails. The trails range in technical difficulty throughout the entire course. Besides having an incredible swag bag, the finish includes plenty of food and Lassen Ale Works beer.
