Note, because of licensing with the Forest Service, we have the 50 miler on hold right now, but with more single track being created in 2020, we may soon have new options to bring it back online..

The brand new Pahvant Trail System completed the first 20 of 100 miles of single track in 2019.  Both distances will catch two amazing new single-track mountain bike sections that parallel the previous years course routing. So expect to hit a couple of great new single track trail sections.
