Overview

This is one of many highschool race courses in the SoCal League. To learn more about the courses, visit socaldirt.org/2018-races/.

Need to Know

There is a middleschool version of this on the Saturday before.

Description

This course is loaded with fun! There are tons of fast singletrack sections and some climbs as well. Some sections require downhill skills on Tunnel of Love and Victory Switch, and a few other technical places. The section that enters the campground is fenced off with a gate just before the place where the Finish Line is located during NICA races. All the gates are opened during the race.
