On The Rocks (OTR) 50k & 33.3k:
Ran the OTR Trail Runs event using almost all of this trail. The OTR is a circuitous loop course. I wanted to do the 50k (three loops), but opted for the 33.3k (two loops). No waypoints or photos.

What a race! Did it in 90+ heat, which is take-down heat on a course like this — a super rocky, Grand-Canyon-style course guaranteed to roll your ankles 3 or more times.

Given the cutoff time for the 50k and the rocky harshness of the course, I’d say this is not for beginners, and is geared for skilled ultra runners. Even if you are skilled, there’s a high risk for falls, ankle rolls, sprains, and DNFs. It’s listed as having 4-1/2 climbs per loop — trust me, it has more climbs than that, and the elevation profile is my witness.

I plan to return to run this course on my own terms, for training and sport. It’s a toughy, but a great trail to train on for hard runs such as this one.

This trail has diverse terrains and a great view midway through of both the NW and SE. Trail majority is extremely rocky. Difficult to keep trail running pace.

Great tree cover, mostly clear trail without rocks, gentle up and downs. Good for kids or beginners. Not much to see.

Was not hard. I would say this is more of an moderate trail. most of this trail is rocky with some small boulders to walk over (-3ft). has bathroom and waterfountain nearby. decent views for the area in some places.
