Directions to the Start

Note: it is a good idea to get gas the day before the race as there are no gas stations near the course.

Follow this for another 1.9 miles and turn left to continue on Stewart Point-Skaggs Springs Road (straight ahead at this point becomes Rockpile Road). Follow for another 0.5 miles and the South Lake Trailhead parking lot is on your right at 100 Marina Road Lot A.

From Cloverdale and points north: take Highway 101 south to the Dutcher Creek Road exit. Turn right upon exiting and then immediately left onto Dutcher Creek Road and follow it for 4.1 miles to Dry Creek Road. Turn right on Dry Creek Road and follow it for 1.1 miles. At the end of Dry Creek Road just below the Warm Springs Dam, the road bends sharply left and becomes Stewart Point-Skaggs Springs Road.

Crew Driving Directions (50 Mile Only)

From the start to Warm Springs Creek: Return to Stewart Point-Skaggs Springs Road. Turn right and follow it for 11 miles to the intersection of Old Skaggs Springs Road. Turn right on Old Skaggs Springs Road and follow it for 3 miles to the gate. (Note that this entire 14 miles is on a very scenic country road that twists and turns. If you are prone to car sickness this might possibly be an issue.) Park here and walk a half-mile further down the road to the aid station.

From Warm Springs Creek to Liberty Glen (Madrone Point): Return up Old Skaggs Springs Road for 3 miles to the stop sign. Turn left onto Stewart Point-Skaggs Springs Road and follow it for 11.5 miles to the stop sign at Rockpile Road. Turn left and follow Rockpile Road for 3.2 miles to the Liberty Glen Campground Road. Turn left and follow this for 0.5 miles. 

After the entrance station, turn left and follow the road to the Group Campground E. Park here and walk about 200 yards up the service road to the top of the hill where the course comes in. The Madrone Point aid station is another mile down the service road but you can crew your runner from this spot. Allow 45 minutes to drive here from Warm Springs Creek.

Liberty Glen to No Name Flat: Return to your car, and drive back up the hill to Rockpile Road. Turn right and follow Rockpile Road for a little over a mile back to the well-signed No Name Flat trailhead parking area on your right.
