Image of the finish line for Leg #10  
Difficulty: Easy-Moderate
Topography: Aggressive ups and downs, becoming gently rolling
Description: Leaving Bear Meadows by reversing direction, a short climb (0.1 mi.) takes you back to the intersection of Treaster Kettle Road. Bear right and follow Treaster Kettle, slowly climbing to a crest at 0.8 mi., and then crashing rapidly down your first significant descent of the course. At 1.5 miles, the s-curve signals the end of the more aggressive grades and the rest of the leg becomes more gently rolling. Pass the gas line cut at 3.0 miles, and at 3.9 miles follow a short paved section to the left. The road switches back to gravel but becomes pavement again at a sharp right turn (4.6 mi.). Take the paved road to a bridge (4.9 mi.) immediately followed by a left turn onto Lake Road. Soon you will reach the entrance of the Colyer Lake parking lot on the left (5.2 mi.). Take that left, cross the bridge, and take a second left to the TZ at the far end of the parking lot.
Transition Zone 2: Colyer Lake paved parking lot. Handoff is a the far end of the lot. Good spectator zone.
