Stage 2 – Vicksburg to Twin Lakes
Starting from Vicksburg, not far from the turnaround of the Leadville Trail 100, you will start climbing gently on gravel Forest Service Road. The first Checkpoint is at only 1.7 miles at the Sheep Gulch Trailhead, where you will enter the singletrack and start climbing steeply for about 2.5 miles to the summit of Hope Pass at over 12,500 feet. After this outstanding photo opportunity, you will descend toward Twin Lakes. The trail is steep and technical until the aid station at 5.3 miles, and then descends more gradually down to the altitude of the lakeshore at about 9,200 feet. From there it is a beautiful rolling singletrack trail on the south shore of the lake and through the historic village of Interlaken. The last few minutes are on a dirt road to the finish. Remember to bring enough water for the entire stage, since supplies are limited at Checkpoint 2.
