The out and back 100 mile course (75% graded dirt and 25% pavement)will venture from the Dudleyville County Park to a turnaround area just outside of Florence Arizona and back to Dudleyville using county roads. Leaving Dudleyville you will start a 2000 foot climb for the first 12 miles. From there it is a twisting turning 36 mile gradual descent (2500 feet) through some of the most scenic desert Arizona has to offer.
