About This Activity

Inlet to Indian Lake: Approx. 38.5 mi (even years, 2014-16-18)
From Arrowhead Park, at elevation 1722’ the race heads east on Route 28, then south on Limekiln Road and into the Moose River Recreation Area. On unpaved mountain roads the course climbs 500’ in the first five miles. The race then rolls through 100’- 200’ elevation changes for the next five miles and after after a few miles on the relatively flat Moose River Plains, begins a steady 800’ climb toward Wakely Mountain. This is followed by 100’-300’ elevation changes down to Cedar River Road, then to Routes 28/30, and finally ending at the Indian Lake School in downtown Indian Lake, elevation 1700’.
