People can ride the marked loops as many times as they want. The rides leaving Camp Greenough will all be led rides and will be unmarked.

Rides:

There will also be a series of led rides both on Greenough property and straying far beyond it.

  • The introductory/kids loop will be about 2 miles long. It's mostly flat with a lot of twisty singletrack.
  • The demo loop will use the marked introductory loop so that test riders can easily compare bikes. 
  • The Intermediate loop will break off from the introductory/family loop. It will add 6-7 more miles of intermediate level singletracks. Lots of hills and more windy flowing singletrack.
  • The Intermediate + loops will all add up to 10 additional intermediate level trails outside of the Greenough Boy Scout Camp. The routes off Greenough property will nor be marked..
  • The advanced ride options will be led rides. They will venture out of Greenough and add 10 or more more miles to the intermediate loop. These will include the most difficult trails that the area has to offer.
