Course Description

This scenic course winds it way through the northeastern wineries of Paso Robles.  The course is completely on paved road the entire time.  Currently parts of Airport Rd between miles 1-2 are in poor condition but will be closed to traffic.  After getting off Airport the roads are in very good condition as they head into the more rural and scenic wine country.  The largest and gradual climb (300ft) starting at mile 5 on Hog Canyon ending at mile 9 as it winds up through the hills.  The rest of the course is even or has small rolling hills until mile 21 where you have about a half mile climb up Wellsona (100ft).  After our version of “Heart Break Hill” on Wellsona you will find a downhill and flat course through the finish.
