Overview

Join the Ozark Off-Road Cyclists and hundreds of other riders for a rowdy day in the woods. The Buffalo Headwaters feature some of the best singletrack and doubletrack trails in the state, plus food, music, and libations.

A good emergency kit is essential. We suggest a multi-tool, spare tube, pump, patch kit, first-aid, emergency blanket, fire starting kit, and plenty of water.

Need to Know

No cell service on most trails.

Description

This ride features plenty of climbing, lots of great downhills, and varied levels of technical challenge from smooth flowing ribbons of trail to rocky climbs that will challenge even the most experienced riders.

You'll enjoy some beautiful views of the Ozarks from the SAG stop at the top of Fire Tower Trail.

There will be some sweet downhill fun on Azalea Falls Trail and Fire Tower Trail.

Come prepared for a long backcountry ride that feels more like 40 miles.
