The Course

Course Map

For one year only, we’re on the east side of the park! But that’s not all. Our 2017 course is going to be downhill! Starting at the Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort, the course will follow N Fork County Road until it hops off at mile 5, at which point we’ll switch to a dirt road. We’ll cross highway 9 at about mile 7, and then head west towards the park. The last few miles will be on trail following the main road. We’ll finish at the east entrance with amazing views of Zion.

Elevation Map

You can see the elevation map below. It’s a lot of up-and-down, and there’s one big climb at near mile 9. But the course will be beautiful and, for the most part, downhill.
