Routes 

There are 8 different routes.  They vary from fairly relaxed to very challenging, so no matter your fitness level, you will be able to find the route that is right for you.

Regardless of the initial route you choose:
  • You can switch back and forth between routes
  • You can always bail if things get a bit difficult.

General Overview of the Routes 

Enduro is a highly technical route that focuses heavily (50% or more) on single track riding. It is meant for experienced riders who have strong technical skills. The group that one chooses within the 4 Enduro group options (there are 2 groups for both the intermediate and advanced Enduro) depends on your fitness level and your desired pace. There are three cross country routes (of which the touring is one). These involve mostly beautiful jeep trails and very little technical, single track riding (although you will probably experience a taste of some basic single track). The route you choose will again depend on your fitness level. The Advanced XC route is for very fit riders who want to push themselves but don't want a technically challenging course. Intermediate is for moderately fit while Touring is designed for relative newbies or perhaps even more experienced riders who want to take it easy and enjoy the scenery. No matter what you choose, your route will be guaranteed breathtaking and your guide will be a superstar.
