Ran the entire 10 mile loop today... and what a fun course!!
First loop is an 8 mile combination of trails and road with 2-3 miles of climbing, some spectacular views and then easy descent back to visitors areas.
The photos here are form the 2 mile easy loop, which is all graded dirt road through grassy flats and meadows with some really neat rock outcroppings.
It will be a tough 50 for sure, and should be great prep for those who are aiming for the Leadville 100.
I will also offer a 50 K (30 miles) for those not desiring such a grueling run!
Getting pretty excited here!
