Heartbreak Hundred • Description

The Heartbreak Hundred is a difficult century leading through high desert and alpine forest landscapes in Los Padres National Forest. It is held on the same day and course as the Heartbreak Double Century.
The initial ascent from Lebec to Frazier Park is followed by climbs to Mount Pinos and Apache Saddle. Then a long descent on Hudson Ranch Road heads down a ridge dividing California's Central Valley in the north from the Cuyama and Lockwood Valleys in the south.
A turn on Highway 166 and another turn on Highway 33 lead to Ventucopa. The course then continues on through Cuyama Valley and climbs up Lockwood Valley, traversing Heartbreak Hill. Eventually the route leads back to Frazier Park and down to Lebec.
