A Hydration Pack is highly recommended for use on the trails. Water fountains are only available at the top and bottom of the Bike Park.

Please dress appropriately for the weather/temperature. Shorts and T-shirt are fine with a sweater or track pants for colder days. Closed toes shoes are required, no sandals or flip flops. We will be riding in all weather, so please be prepared with rain gear and sunscreen!
