Puzzler 2015 35-Mile Course
This is the main course for the 2015 Puzzler Mountain Bike Race in Franklin Mountains State Park, El Paso, Texas. There's a 1000 foot climb in the first few miles of warmup, then things get serious! A long climb up Mundy's Gap leads to a scree field downhill. And you're only half way through. Ride all the way thru the Tom Mays section of the park, then back up and over the mountains on the Northern Pass Trail and back down to the start-finish area. If you're doing the 50-mile race you'll keep going on another 15 mile addition. Sick!
- 36.42 miles of Singletrack
- 1800 feet
How to get there:
The race starts from the Bowen Ranch Roundhouse off of Martin Luther King Drive in northeast El Paso. You can only drive to this trailhead on race days. Otherwise, start at one of the regular trailheads in the park.
