Explore the 2011 Vapor Trail 125 course!

The course for the 7th Annual Vapor Trail 125 will be the same as the incredible 2010 course!

We've broken up the very large, dispersed, rugged and beautiful Vapor Trail 125 race course for 2011 into 10 sections so that you can analyze and think about them, visit them, or plan for your own ride.

Want a GPX track file of the course to load into your GPS to help you follow it? We have one here: (vapor2012route.gpx).
