134.3 Miles, 8,101 Feet of climbing including 4 significant climbs:
- “The Primer” – an irritating little six mile 4% grade climb at mile 30.
- “The Leviathan” – a long and arduous 5 mile- category 3 climb at mile 75
- “The Petro” – named after Alec Petro, the most complete individual we have and will ever know. This classic New England section, starts with a cruise through the Bartonsville covered bridge and then climbs up a single lane old wagon road, through the Vermont village of Bartonsville and through the area woods. The climb is 3 miles in length followed by a 1 mile section on unpaved hard pack. An epic climb just like Alec would have loved.
- “The Homestretch” – not really a single climb but more like having a stone in your shoe… it starts at mile 110 and then continues with 20 miles of annoying uphill until you arrive in Ludlow, VT

This area is provides a large, more expansive venue that includes the Jackson Gore Inn and Okemo’s Adventure Zone featuring zipline tours, a mountain coaster, a treetop challenge course, a miniature golf course and lots more fun for kids and family.
