The route begins along the historic Ulster and Delaware Turnpike, which dates from the 1700s and is now State Route 28, and then finishes along the Catskill and Susquehanna Turnpike, dating from the early 1800s, through Franklin and into Unadilla. The road crests four hills over 2000 feet elevation along the way. Your car should have good brakes and good power to run the Catskill Conquest.
This route follows the Historic 1903 Endurance Run on the roads of today. This was a challenge in 1903, and the route today goes up and down some very big hills. Participants in the rally should look at the profile of these elevations provided in this Route Listing along with the standard road map.
Route maps will be distributed from the rally starting point at the Maurice D. Hinchey Catskill Interpretive Center in Mt. Tremper, NY.
