Beginners Challenge course, is an approximate 14 mile course, it has a lot to offer any rider. It has plenty of singletrack, rock gardens, and tons of great views, some people ride the course just for the sheer fun, of going up getting refreshment and heading back down. It is a fun ride and will let you know where you sit in any shape or form. It will help you become a better rider. Not so much an endurance test but good ride…
Epic Challenge Course, This is a 22 mile test for the men and women of your skills, and also of your metal… With the beginner course thrown in with additional technical singletrack in South Fork Trail, again additional stream crossings, with a lot of climbing; this is a classic course.
