So I went out again today and did the road part of the course, the extra loop for the cat1 and pros, and the junior loop.
This picture is the road that you ride on for the last third of the junior loop.
So I think the junior total miles is around 13 with 4 being single track(the best part of the single track)
This picture is part of the view from the cat1-pro loop.

The race starts in downtown Echo and goes neutral for about a mile on pavement. Then the racing starts with 2.5 mile of gravel road, uphill first, then kind of flat, then about a quarter mile of pretty steep descending that may cause some flats.
This is the steepest descent, it is steeper than it looks.
This picture is the beginning of the main 18.5 mile single track loop.
