Behind the Rocks Ultra starts and finishes at the Behind the Rocks Trail, along the border of the Behind the Rocks Wilderness Study Area.
The bike course is physically demanding but technically mellow all on double track and gravel bike compatible. There are steep ups and downs with only a few rocky bits, no drops or steps. The run is typical North desert with ups and downs.
