Starting from South Ridge Road, the first few miles will take you up flowy singletrack to the start of South Ridge trail. Switchback your way up the next 4 miles to the summit of Tahquitz peak. Fuel up at the aid station and make your way to the Hidden Divide, a remote part of the range that has eerie remnants of fire damage and offering one of a kind views down into Palm Springs from almost 2 miles above. Prepare to climb as you make your way to Round Valley, hit the aid station and keep climbing all the way up to San Jacinto peak. Enjoy the views as you wait for your legs to work again. From here descend to the last peak, Suicide Rock. Fuel up again and take a look at where you are about to run back to, that’s right, Tahquitz peak. Shed a final tear and flop your way back down South Ridge to the finish. Pretend to look fresh for your finish line photo! 

Come for pain, stay for the beauty.
