Santa Cruz Stage 1: Rossland

Date:  July 29th, 2017

The Stage:  Singletrack 6 kicks off in beautiful, historic downtown Rossland and explores the trails south of the city. After a mellow roll-out through the community, the route makes its way through a combination of double and singletrack, climbing on the manicured switchbacks of the Tamarack trail. A little more climbing on double track will bring you to the Crown Point descent; an old-school black xc trail linking to the valley bottom. Then it’s another leg-burning road climb up to the slightly more technical Whiskey descent. One final major climb will bring you back to the top of the Tamarack trail, which will give the chance for some downhill enjoyment, aiming you back to town for the finish!

Distance:  Approx. 40.2 km

Elevation Gain:  1,600 m of climbing
