Day 1 trail:
25 and 50 milers will head west on 'Teeter Ranch Rd' out of camp, crossing Pickett Creek, and climbing out of the canyon to get on top. Head south along 2-track and dirt roads, drop down (steep trail) into Little Hart Creek canyon, then continue south on trail and 2-track through some very 'solitary' country. Cross Hart Creek and then climb back up to the flats for several miles along a dirt road. You'll eventually drop down into Brown's Creek canyon and follow the trail along the creek for a vetcheck when you reach the flat on Triangle Road at the Browns Creek crossing after the 12.5 mile leg.

25 milers will take the same trail back to camp for the finish. pbr > After the vetcheck 50 milers will head northwest up Triangle Rd . Turn south onto a dirt road to the north side of Browns Creek. Drop down and follow trail and cross country through a small canyon cross, ride by the old rock corral, then take a cow path back up onto the flat. Follow dirt road and 2-track to the base of Toy Mountain. You'll ride around some beautiful granite rock outcrops, cross Alder Creek, then ride back to the east and north. Cross Alder Creek again at Crazy Woman mine, then follow nice dirt road and single track for several miles until you drop back down to Brown's Creek drainage. One more crossing and a dirt road will take you back to the same vetcheck for another hold.

Follow the 12.5 mile route back home.

Day 3 Trail:
80 & 100: Revised - new out vet check location, easier trail on the bluff above the river to bypass boulders
30, 60, 80 and 100 milers:

Leave camp riding to the northeast, taking a dirt road to the Hwy 78 crossing. Water stop along Rye Patch Rd, then drop down into the washes and buttes on the way to Sierra Del Rio Ranch (an original homestead along the Oregon Trail). All distance will have a Vet Check at the ranch.

30 Milers will then turn around and ride back to Basecamp on the same trail

60, 80 and 100 milers will then climb up the old Oregon Trail onto the flats above the Snake River. There will be a water stop at the substation 4 miles from the ranch. Continue along the flats and drop down into the Snake River Canyon just below the dam. Follow beautiful 2-track trail along the river, dropping down to the river at the old Weeis stone buildings, and circling back up around huge boulders with ancient petroglyphs carved into them.

60 milers will turn around and head back after the petroglyphs. Then retrace the trail to the Sierra Del Rio Ranch for another vetcheck, and then continue back to basecamp for finish.

80 and 100 milers will continue along the river for a short way, then climb up a single track trail to the bluff above. Follow this trail for 5 miles to a vetcheck (new location) off of Con Shea Rd. Drop back down and follow the river another 4 miles and then cross over the river on Guffy Bridge (it's safe!) for a checkpoint on the north side at Celebration Park. Turn around, and retrace your path back to the Con Shea Rd vetcheck, back to Rio del Sierra Ranch vetcheck, and then back to camp.

60 and 80 milers will finish at Basecamp.

100 milers will have another hold at Basecamp and then finish with a 20 mile loop over to Ryepatch Rd. Easy access for crews, road crossings with radio communication, an easy trail for the final loop and night riding. We will put glowsticks out for late riders.
