Below is a brief summery of the project, feel free to use any of this in your comments.

  • 60 miles of purpose built mountain bike trails at higher elevations and cooler temperatures up to 7,000 feet elevation
  • New XC race course designed to meet NICA requirements with parking for large crowds
  • Designed with multiple access points to allow use of the network even during an event
  • 23 miles of directional downhill trails built for a variety of skill levels
  • Designed with riding loops as well as shuttle options
  • There will be a 10+ mile true enduro downhill with “a”and “b” lines, and a 1.8 mile jump line
