About This Activity

****UPDATES 4/19****

For safety reasons the course has changed slightly! The unincorporated part of the previous North loop has been replaced by sections of the 373, 372, and 81. The change to the north loop actually means more of trail 396!! South loop has bypassed the 383 to avoid any horses (holiday weekend) and stays on the 707 rd. (which is really fast). Check out the new race maps!!!
