Our three routes offer a perfect blend of historic gold mining towns, epic climbs, solitude-filled roads and incredible scenery. All routes will start and finish at the Gold Country Fairgrounds.

We’ve made some changes in 2017

For 2017, you’ll have the three route choices — and you won’t have to commit untilyou get to Colfax. Only the 140-mile route will be going to Dutch Flat. The other two routes will head straight for Iowa Hill (while the legs are still fresh and strong).

Furthermore, all three routes will visit China Wall and indulge in pie and ice cream while only the 140-mile and 110-mile will be heading up to Robinson Flat for some of the best High Sierra views around.
