Point-to-Point race from the Cascades to Mountain Lake. King and Queen of the Mountain cash prize to the first male and female to AS1-2000′ 4mi. The EDU “short course”-8 mile trail race on the final miles of the ultra course.
Racers will park their cars at the finish (Mountain Lake) and be shuttled to the Cascades trail head near Pembroke. Here racers will check in. The start is along the Cascades Trail and climbs towards the falls. Racers will drop down to the falls and climb back to the top of Butt Mountain. The next several miles are rarely used forest roads that are the home to many migratory birds and tall ferns. This road meanders along the back side of the mountains towards Wind Rock. The climb is two miles long and is very runnable. Then, just after a long section through a large mountain top meadow. Get through here quick so you don’t roast in the sun. There is one last aid station that will root you on the final 1.5 miles. Most of the roads are lined with ferns and boulders with large Hemlocks looming above.
