The course is 4.3 miles long and climbs 2,550 vertical feet on the famous Mt.Mansfield Toll Road to the summit parking lot. The racecourse starts on pavement for a third of a mile, then switches to gravel for 4 miles.

Racers face a steady incline throughout the course, with a 10-degree maximum pitch. Among the rewards is one of the most spectacular views in the East, overlooking three states and Canada.

All participants must ride mountain bikes with tires at least 2 inches wide.
