Description of the terrain: In 2015, we have incorporated more trails and double track. Most of the riding will take place on Dirt roads(these can be smooth, they can be rough, and they can be really tough). There will be some pavement, some ATV trail, and Single track. The single track isn’t groomed to perfection and can be down right tough. There will be hike-a -bike sections, loooong downhills(one is 4.5 miles) and some trail that will be ridge top with great views.
