Leg 5 – Lindbergh Express – 15 km (for 100 mile soloist and 100 mile relay teams only)
From the Fort George/Buckingham check pt. you will head past The Lindbergh Salt Plant and the scenic hamlet of Riverview, ending up in the friendly town of Lindbergh. It’s not the hardest leg but the time you spend on the gravel Iron Horse trail will cause you some difficulties.
