  • Just when I thought I knew how to ride the trails on a mountain bike... we completed a half-day session. Cliff gave us initial pointers, then we headed out to the trails for more hands-on experience. What a difference! Cliff was patient, and able to quickly articulate corrections on the fly. If you are out of shape, it might be a little difficult but we made regular stops. We look forward to returning!
  • You won't beat this place easily, very good at what they do and so friendly..
  • Perfect for the beginner and intermediate mountain bikers. Excellent bikes and instruction provided by the proprietor, Cliff. Trails were meticulously maintained with a nice mix of twisty single track, couple technical climbs and exhilarating descents. Advanced cyclists will be a little frustrated with the slow pace and short length of the rides. The vibe of the facility was chill and inviting, food and drink was excellent as was the musical talent. If you are looking for a new adventure with great camaraderie, and Mountain Biking is in your plan...this is definitely the place to get to! If you need cell service... seek elsewhere... this is definitely in the backcountry... part of the appeal!
  • The mountain biking part of the experience was great but unfortunately everything else was disappointing. My partner did not feel comfortable being in the place and I felt that the owner made things awkward when he commented on her beauty. I guess the experience would have been different if I had gone alone since the whole thing was dickfest. The fact that the place is located in the middle of nowhere and that women are not made to feel comfortable is big ' NO ' for me.
  • Cliff and Tyler were great. We brought a group of 10 boys who were part of a Boy Scout Venturing Crew. The instruction was thorough and on point. There were a variety of trails for all levels. We had a great time.
