Participants of the Castle Country Century start their ride outside the mountain town of Scofield at Madsen Bay State Park just north of Scofield Reservoir. At an elevation of 7,700 ft riders work their way south around Scofield Reservoir, through the town of Scofield and begin the first grueling accent to the top of Eccles Canyon, where road grades reach 12% and elevations climb to 9,400 feet.
Riders then make a small descent and work their way around the north end of Electric Lake and in to Huntington Canyon, where they will make their second and final major ascent to the top of Huntington Canyon, where road grades stay under 10% as elevation climbs to 9,780 feet.
Following the summit of Huntington Canyon, riders descend over 40 miles and go around the south end of Electric Lake, as they work their way into the town of Huntington. After passing through Huntington, riders meander along the outskirts of the San Rafael Swell and through the rural communities of Cleveland and Elmo.
After Cleveland and Elmo, riders make their way through Wellington to the finish line in Price.
Activities for after the ride or non-participants include:
The Helper Arts Festival in Helper, Ut
The Desert Wave Pool
Carbon County Country Club
North Springs Shooting Range
Numerous Mountain Biking trails and ATV trails
