The Hermit Pass Marathon will start at A Painted View Ranch and follow Hermit Rd up to the summit of Hermit Pass and then return down the same route but once back on the county road portion, it will deviate north on to Ute Mesa Trail, to Pines Road and then to Kettle Lane and finish at A Painted View Ranch. Elevation gain for the first 11 miles is a gradual steady climb from 7878 ft to 13,050 ft., approx, 5,072 ft.total. The closer the trail gets to the top of the pass, the more rocky and primitive and difficult it becomes. The run down Hermit Road is very tough. THIS IS A VERY DIFFICULT COURSE FOR WELL SEASONED AND PREPARED ATHLETES. The final 5 miles is on county gravel road with washboard and loose gravel, but beautiful views of the Valley floor and the Wet Mountains.
