50k: 7,150 feet of elevation gain | 30k: 4,066 feet of elevation gain
Welcome to the Westfir 30k/50k. The 50k route will take you on the famous ATCA route backwards. This route is consistently ranked in the top five best mountain bike routes in the entire state! The 50k will take you up the famous Alpine trail before you do a lollipop loop on the Cloverpatch trail, and Tire Mountain trail. You will then go up on the Alpine trail until you get to Windy Pass. From there you will finish by blasting down the alpine trail back to the start/finish line. You will have great views of deep woods as well as open views of the Willamette National Forest. This will be a very challenging 50k with over 7,000 feet of elevation gain! There will be three aid stations that you will hit a total of four times.
The 30k will stay inclusively on the Alpine Trail to Windy Pass, before bombing back down the trail. It is an out and back course. There are two aid stations that you will hit a total of three times.
