That's a tough question. When you're in it and struggling it seems to go on forever. The sand on the refuge has a lot of twists and turns so it makes it hard to keep enough speed. The refuge is a lot harder than the Goldwater Range. The Goldwater seems straighter so you can fly across the sand. The whole ride is 125 miles more or less so I'd guess the tough sand is maybe ten miles if you add it all up. Sorry to be vague.
