Spectator Information
Viewing Locations

The best viewing location is from the Festival Area. You’ll be able to view the entire swim, all transitions, and the Finish.

A secondary viewing area is at the top of Lynch Hill. You will be able to see the participants leave and return on the Bike Course and you will also be able to catch them at the beginning of the last mile of the downhill run.

Road Closures

Please do not plan on leaving the park until after 3 PM on Saturday and Sunday. Safety is our first priority. When leaving the park please follow all instructions given to you by rangers, security, race officials and course marshals. Please drive slowly and watch for participants and pedestrians on the roads. All spectators must arrive prior to 8 AM on Saturday and Sunday in order to enter the park for the event.

If you arrive after the roads close, or you plan on leaving earlier than the roads open, we do offer the option of parking at the North Shore campgrounds and taking a boat shuttle to the festival area.


When you arrive at the entry gate please have your Festival Day Pass ready and Event Staff will help direct you to open parking spaces. We will also be selling Festival Day Passes at the front gate, but be aware not pre-purchasing them could lead to some delays in getting down to see the start of the race.

There is no car access or parking in the Lynch Area without an authorized parking permit.

Course Maps

Walking Trails


Please take advantage of the beautiful walking trails marked around the park to get to the festival area. They are marked on the following map by black dashed lines.
