UTA11 is a great introduction to Ultra-Trail Australia and trail running. The course traverses some of most stunning tracks of the Blue Mountains and while you encounter the odd lump along the way, it is very achievable for all abilities.
You'll start at KCC Oval, across the road for Scenic World. The route takes you out Cliff Drive and along Glenraphael Drive to the turn around point beyond the locked gate at Narrow Neck.
Return to Golden Stairs, then down Golden Stairs along Federal Pass through Landslide to the based of Furber Steps.
To get the real taste of UTA, you'll get to take on all of the 951 Furber Steps up to the finish at Scenic World.
Walking tracks, single track
Fire roads, dirt roads
