Elk-King's Mountain Traverse
The Elk King's Mountain Traverse features two courses in the Tillamook Forest, a 15-mile and a 50K. Each course has it's own signature to it. Runners opting for something more technical should look to the 15 miler, while longer distance enthusiasts will want to have a look at the 50k + option.
Runners taking on the 15 mile course will end up summitting both Elk and King mountains during the day. There is about 5,800 feet of elevation gained over the single track course. Expect a number of technical sections as you work your way through things.
The 50k route is a double out and back along the Wilson River Trail. Racers will end up gaining around 7,500 feet over the course. The long course is less technical than the 15 miler.
