The course starts by running up near Resurrection Pass before taking a right turn on the Devil's Pass trail junction, about mile 16.5. Follow Devil's Pass down 6 miles.
Note that runners will not descend all the way to the Devil's Pass Trailhead.
The turnaround point will be manned and marks the one and only checkpoint on the course (mile 22.5). Due to the remote nature of this checkpoint, any aid and/or drop bags will depend on the availability of volunteers to haul that gear - 4 miles in and 4 miles out.
Turn around and climb back to the junction to complete the 12 mile out and back. Upon returning to the junction, take a right turn and head north to the Resurrection Pass Trailhead in Hope.
