Meet us on the gravel road by the pavilion on the Western Slope with your bike and we’ll take you to the top of the overlook so you can head towards Kaylor’s Knob or Puzzler. Don’t want something quite that technical? We can also drop you off at Point C/Special K trail crossing for access to the pink and yellow loops as well as most of the middle trails (View the trail map here). After we turn the shuttle around we’ll head back to the pavilion and pick you up for another lap. The shuttle will depart from the pavilion every hour on the hour for another lap.

The shuttle will be one of our smaller shuttle vehicles or our new shuttle trailer depending on the number of riders that day.

Tickets can be purchased for a full day of riding or a single trip up the hill. Reservations are required. To book please call the Bike Shop @ 540.289.4957 or use the below booking widget.
