MEALS: Fruit and Drinks on the trail. Potluck Friday. Lots and lots of local restaurants just three miles away. We can watch your horses.
TRAILS: 85% to 95% single track depending on distance with views of the Trinity Alps Wilderness, Mount Shasta and more. There are technical single tracks with drops offs, twists and turns and bridges, creek crossings, knee knockers and low limbs and eye jabbers. The course will be well marked. The footing is great on most the trails. These are very moderate courses. It does not go up and down a lot, no constant elevation changes. We work hard on course design to keep you in the shade during the heat of the day. Lots of level ditch trails. We are also working hard to get the worse of the offending verge cleared. There is natural water on the trails as well as water tanks for drinking and tubs to sponge out of. Sponging water is cooled with ice if necessary to ensure it stays cool enough to be effective. Water is available on the course every five miles or less.
