Once completing the two loops north of the Sugar Pine Point entrance the course then heads south 12 miles to the same turnaround as the Olympic course. On the way back to the transition area merge right off of HWY 89 to the bike path a few hundred feet south of the entrance to Sugar Pine Point. Note the bike course is open to vehicle traffic.

Soon after crossing over General Creek the course heads onto the scenic lake shore Dolder Nature Trail. It then turns right back onto the Rod Beaudry Trail and continues west crossing HWY 89.
