Need to Know
There is parking at the north and south of the Millsap Mountain marked on MTB Project.
This is one tough course with lots of 10-15% grade sections and up and down hill section meant to put the pros to the test.
The course starts with several berms and some up and down completely rock, I'd call them 'table-tops,' followed by what would be a really flowing downhill section if not for the rock and gravel chunks spaced intermittently throughout. The next section is winding with alternative rock jumps (shorter) or alternate route and a few mandatory drops with an almost all rock uphill climb. That's just the first section.
The second section starts with a series of five back-to-back mandatory drops followed by some surface and a couple rock berms with the last one being a tight 180-degree turn back into the uphill section.
The third section is a little more flowing with a few change up table tops. The later section mixes in occasional patches of just rock and a little gravel. Wrapping in another huge uphill portion with several mostly rock face climbing lines that run along each other before another shorter downhill section.
The fourth section starts with another downhill and has some of the largest jumps of the entire course being rock coming in and a metal-dirt transition landing area depending on the distance followed by a long rough rock section before the uphill climb culminating in a double log transition.
The finish isn't a walk in the park either you, still have few winding berms but mostly straight for those that still have a little in the tank.
In summary, this course is fun but not for the feint of heart designed for the Olympic trials with huge sections also to be used for the 2022 World Cyclocross Finals.
