The first 3 miles is a fireroad climb, followed by a mile of mostly level and then the rest is fun, flowy, mostly downhill singletrack...you'll love it! We'll use standard arrows and ribbon and such.

Daily fee is $11 per site.There's another campground at Junction City, 8 miles west on Hwy299, and another at Rush Creek about 6 miles out Highway 3. Rush Creek has no water, but it's only $7. Or 7 miles weast of Weaverville off Highway 299 to Steiner Flat Road is Douglas City with 18 tent/trailer campsites, group picnic area, picnic tables, telephone, beach, paved loop road, flush and vault toilets, potable water, and fire rings. $10.00 per vehicle, per night .

    I'm in! Just need to decide if I'll enjoy it more on a singlespeed or geared rig. Sounds like most of the climbing is on the fireroad at the beginning of each lap, right? How steep/loose?

    The course map link on your website is broken BTW. Thanks.

    Right, the majority of the climbing is on Weaver Bally Road, a hard-pack logging road. The grade is fairly constant with a few steep pitches (especially the last one) but it does level out a few times allowing riders a little recovery. Traction if good for most of the climb and even the few sections of gravel roll well--they're pretty packed down.

    Thank you for the heads-up on the map. We'll get that fixed.

    memine, those pitches that Vic is talking about are steep on a geared bike. Expect to walk them.
    Take a look at and consider "liking" my Vegan Athlete Facebook page.

    Can't be much steeper the the Hubolt Race and I cleared all those well enough without walking. the ability to be able to SS a course is a loaded question that's more up to rider fitness and gearing selection. Regardless I'll be there on my SS doing my best to keep the overall leaders in sight, hoping Tinker is still tired from his race the week before. If I get out there to pre-ride the course I'll post up my decided gearing choice here for anyone to reference.

    That first 3 miles or so in Weaverville is way harder than any climb at Humboldt at about 400 ft. per mile , IMHO.
