Circle Creek High Trail Video by Merri
Basecamp is a large field adjacent to the City of Rocks National Preserve, elevation 5500 ft. The trail footing in this area is very good, with just a few rocky sections - it is NOT a rocky ride!

There will be some climbing everyday into the aspen forests. High point on Day 1 is 7500', on Day 2 6500' for the 25 milers, 7000' for the 50 milers. Day 3 will have the most climbs, with 25 milers going to 7500 ' and the 55 milers reaching 8500' for a spectacular view.

You'll ride scenic single track trails through the park, and 2-track roads and cow trails across the high sagebrush desert BLM land. USFS trails will be a combination of dirt road and 2-track, some single track trail through the aspen groves and sub-alpine fir.

City of Rocks is know for it's botanical diversity - you'll see cactus, pinion pine, sagebrush, aspen and sub-alpine fire - all on one day's ride!
