For riding, there are a bunch of excellent new trails at the campsite itself. In addition, here are the group rides we’ll be having if you want to try to plan your time for the weekend in advance. If you’d like to volunteer to lead a ride, please contact ride coordinator Sue George.

We also recommend downloading the free MTBProject app (available free in Google Play or Apple app stores) before you get to the campground as it contains excellent maps, descriptions, and GPS navigation for all the popular (and some unpopular) trails near the festival.
