The RTC will take runners and hikers through tunnels of rhododendron, towering Hemlocks, blooming mountain laurel, seas of fern, and mini boulder fields. The 17.2 mile course features mostly single track trails with 3 aid stations strategically spaced about every four miles. The signature section of the course remains the ever daunting Shingletown Gap cliff trail.
