2023 DISTANCES OFFERED:

Friday:

All holds back at camp.  Time to get back to camp from finish -- see Rules.

 

Used all days:

Bridge Access trails -- To get to the West Range trails, riders must cross the French Broad River on a lovely concrete bridge.

Lime Bridge Access takes you between the base camp and the bridge over the French Broad River that provides access to and from the West Range Trails. Lime is 4.5 miles long, going up below the House then through Deer Park, then down to be along the River

Purple Bridge Return takes you from the bridge back to camp. After a brief run along the River, it heads back up hill going through Deer Park by the hack barn then below the House and back down to the River then to camp, netting 4.9 miles. A lot of it is Lime Long in reverse, but has a few shifts so narrow trails are avoided for two-way traffic.
