THE TRACK

For both the 20 and 40 km rides are a combination of forestry road, trails and private property.  Some of the trail is sandy, some rocky.  There is a technical trail and a few challenging hills.

It is a moderate ride especially early in the season if it is hot.

Upper Corindi is a scenic ride through hilly terrain with State Forest and private property, spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and offshore islands. Featuring cool ocean breezes!

 

RIDE BASE INFORMATION

  • • Shady campsites on a very scenic working cattle property.
  • • If you bring your dogs they must be on a lead at all times.
