13 Mile Downhill Ride
Ride will begin at 10:00 am as a shuttle only, wheels rolling at roughly at 11:15am.

This 13 mile ride will start at the top near what we call “Red Flats”. Ride a fast 13 miles down gravel roads back to the base of Hunter Creek Road where the pavement meets the gravel. Take the rotating shuttle back to the Park or for those looking for more miles, you may also ride all the way back to the Park (about 7.5 miles) if you choose, but the official ride is completed at the pavement break. Helmets and properly functioning bicycles are required. It is also recommended that you bring your own tools, tire repair, snacks, and ample water. There is no support, you will need to be prepared. Best types of bikes for his ride would be full suspension mountain bikes or hardtail mountain bikes. Feel free to message us on Facebook if you have any questions.
