The course starts on a one-mile stretch of pavement, which spreads the field before jumping into tight winding single track. Nearly all of the 21 miles of racing is in single/double track. This extremely fast and technical course is full of large embedded rocks, which provide wide grin racing for all skill levels. All expert racers will do a 21 mile loop. Sport racers will do a 16 mile loop. Beginner racers will do a shortened 7-mile loop. Two water stations are provided along the course.

The kid's race will be held at 10:00 Sunday morning just before the adult race. Young racers will be treated to a true "in the woods" kids course. All kid racers will receive medals and a hand dipped ice cream cone from the Big Bear County Store. Having the kid's race on Sunday provides a unique opportunity for the entire family to participate in a mountain bike event. Classes are ages 6 through 12, both girls and boys.
