Course Description:
The Mt.Disappointment 50k course has approximately 5700 feet of elevation gain and loss, all within the Angeles National Forest. The start will be at 6:00am from the parking lot in Skyline Park at the summit of Mt. Wilson. All runners will follow the race vehicle down Mt. Wilson Road about 2¼ miles to Eaton Saddle. Runners then follow the dirt fire road to Markham Saddle where they will be surrounded by a 360° panoramic view of 7 peaks, which include Occidental Peak, Mt. Lowe, Muir Peak, Brown Mountain, Mt. Markham, San Gabriel Peak, and of course, Mt. Disappointment.

From Markham Saddle, runners will take the trail up to Mt. Disappointment going past San Gabriel Peak (6000ft) and continue on the Mt. Disappointment Trail down to the Red Box Aid Station #1 (mile 5.7). From Red Box the race follows the historic Gabrielino Trail west to Switzers Picnic area. Runners will go up the USFS paved road (0.4 miles) to the trail which connects to the Clear Creek Aid Station (mile 10.8).

After Clear Creek, runners then climb Fire Road 2N64 to the "water-only aid station" atop Josephine Saddle (mile 13.45). Once at Josephine Saddle, the runners will follow the newly widened Colby Canyon Trail around Strawberry Peak and down through Strawberry Potrero eventually connecting to the Strawberry Trail. Along this portion of the course runners will view vistas of the entire Big Tujunga Canyon and beyond. After connecting to Strawberry Trail, they will follow the single-track up to Lawlor Saddle, where Mt. Wilson and Mt. Disappointment come back into view. Once at the saddle, runners will follow this gently rolling trail back to the Red Box Aid Station #2 (mile 21.25).

The final ten miles of the race begins with the Gabrielino Trail (for 0.7 miles) to Red Box Road. After connecting to Red Box Fire Road, runners will continue on this tree-covered grade all the way to the West Fork Aid Station (mile 25.95). Upon leaving this last aid station, all runners take the Gabrielino Trail going west to the base of the Kenyon Devore Trail. The final climb, which offers spectacular views while being physically challenging, ascends along the Kenyon Devore Trail (1910ft in 3.1 miles) up to the Mt. Wilson Summit Finish (31.3 miles total).
