NEW Course Change! (As of September 15, 2018).
Please note: The US Forest Service has asked that we make a couple changes to the course in 2018. 

Click here for a printable map.
Here are the minor changes:
Change 1.) Outbound at the lower Noble Canyon trail-head the course will start up the main Noble Canyon trail (rather than taking the cutoff trail to the left). Stay on the main Noble trail all the way to the first aid station at Big Tree. 

Change 2.) When you reach Big Laguna Lake the course will stay to the right and will go around the EAST side of Big Laguna Lake. We will no longer go around the levy and will not go around the west side of the lake.

Change 3.) On the return when you reach Pine Creek Road Aid Station you will just do an out-and-back here and you will not do the small loop after Pine Creek Road. 

 Other than these three changes, the 2018 course will be the same as 2017. A new map is now posted below.

Remember the 2018 Venue Change: 
The Start/Finish venue in 2018 is  moving across the street to the Creekside Ranch
8579 Pine Creek Rd, Pine Valley, CA 91962

Course Description (Updated September 15, 2018)

In 2018 runners will start at the Creekside Ranch (across the street from the Bible Camp) and run approx 1 mile along the asphalt road to the Noble Canyon trail-head area. Outbound you will now take the main Noble Canyon trail. You will NOT pass through the Pine Creek Road the on this first pass. Follow the Main Noble Canyon trail to the first aid station is Big Tree, followed by Penny Pines at the top.

After leaving the Penny Pines aid station carefully cross Sunrise Highway then turn RIGHT onto the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT). After about 4 miles again turn RIGHT leaving the PCT and connecting with the Big Laguna trail system. This trail drops you into the Rat Hole aid station!

Leave Rat Hole by crossing Sunrise Highway and continuing on the Big Laguna Trail. Follow the maps westbound to Big Laguna Lake. Now you will stay right and go around the EAST side of Big Laguna Lake.  Follow the maps to the tricky left onto trail #5 which will connect you again with the main Noble Canyon trail.

Head back down the main Noble Canyon trail. You'll get aid again at Big Tree aid station then the Pine Creek Road aid station.
Pine Creek Road is a short 0.25 mile out-and-back. Then you'll retrace your steps back to the finish at the Creekside Ranch!
