Encouraging trail stewardship in partnership with Hardscrabble Trails Coalition, Vail Valley Mountain Bike Association

The Vail Rec District is a proud supporter of the Eagle County trails and the organizations that work hard to maintain them. It is important to remember that riding and racing on world class trails is a privilege and our trails do not build or maintain themselves. This year during the Athletic Club at the Westin Mountain Bike Series, riders can earn an additional 25 points towards their overall series total if they participate in one trail work event prior to August 22. In order to be considered, participants must snap a photo of themselves during the event and tag the Vail Recreation District Facebook page as well as either the VVMBA or the HTC Facebook page (depending on the host).

Course Map

 

Directions

Take I-70 to Eagle (exit 147). At the roundabout, head south on Eby Creek Road. Continue south through the roundabouts on Eby Creek Road, until you cross the Eagle River. At the next roundabout, take the first right out of the roundabout onto Grand Avenue/Highway 6. Go west on Grand Avenue/Highway 6 for 0.8 miles to the next roundabout. At this roundabout, take the third right onto Sylvan Lake Road. Continue on Sylvan Lake Road approximately 1 mile, and then take a right on Eagle Ranch Road. Follow Eagle Ranch Road to 4th of July Road, then turn right. 4th of July Road takes you uphill for another mile or so, leading to Arroyo Drive. Turn left. The trailhead is approximately 0.25 miles on the right.

 

Parking

Participants are asked to park at the after-party location in the Eagle Ranch Business District and ride to the start, as parking is extremely limited at the trailhead. If participants drive to the start, they will need to park on 4th of July Road as directed by VRD staff. Arroyo Drive will be closed to all vehicle traffic between 4th of July Road and Haystacker Drive from 4 to 8 p.m.

 

Course Descriptions

Last Minute Update! Adults will not be doing a modified start loop on the bikepath and Arroyo Dr. as was previously stated. Due to trail improvements over the weekend, all adults will start on the bike path at the Arroyo Trailhead Parking Lot and proceed directly to the dirt. There will be signage to direct you. Unfortunately it will still be a narrower start than we'd like. Please be patient and courteous as it will open up and you will have plenty of opportunities to pass.  

Short Loop – From start, ride up 2nd Gulch and bear left on the Jeep Road/Hardscrabble Connector. Turn left at the bottom of the hill towards Mayer Gulch and turn left on Mayer Gulch. Descend to the bottom and stay left towards Turniphead. Turniphead will take you back to the start/finish.

Wall/Riddle Loop – From start, ride up 2nd Gulch and bear left on the Jeep Road/Hardscrabble Connector. Turn left at the bottom of the hill towards Mayer Gulch and turn left on Meyer Gulch. Descend to the bottom and turn right towards Wall Trail. At the corner, you will cross Haystacker Drive - please use caution, there will be a course marshal here - and continue up Wall to Riddle. Follow Riddle back to Meyer Gulch and turn right. Use caution as loops merge here. Descend Mayer Gulch again and turn left this time onto Turniphead to return to the start/finish.

Bailey Loop - From start, ride up 2nd Gulch and continue straight at Jeep Road/Hardscrabble Connector intersection. Continue climbing to Bailey single track and turn right. Ride up and down Bailey back to the start. Use caution when merging back onto the 2nd Gulch trail.

Important....
• See start list for race courses and distances for each category.

• Ride loops in order listed on start list.

• Only adult racers will do the Start Loop. Youth Series races will start on the bike path as directed by staff.

• All riders are responsible for knowing their courses and keeping track of their laps.

• If you DNF for any reason, including racing the wrong course, please do not ride through finish and let race staff know.
