They will be available late this fall - most likely around Thanksgiving.

I am looking forward to it.  What kind of elevations does the route travel?

On the Main Route, the elevation will range from 3000ft to 8900ft. The singletrack option through the White Clouds tops out at just under 10000ft.

Thanks.

How bad are the goat head thorns?  Are or crazy heavy thorn proof tubes or tubeless a requirement?

No goatheads. I ran tubes and lightweight tires and never punctured. Maybe I just need to rage more, huh.

No problem.

We are working on getting some more info up on ACA's website, but for now if you want a general idea of what the route is about, check out these articles:

Any thoughts to when this route becomes snow free? This year or average?
