The Black MTB World Cup Route is a short but challenging route, on variable terrain of mainly single track trails and some forest roads. Some very steep climbs and challenging, purpose built descents, estimated to be around 6 miles.
The Red route from Dixon's Hollow takes in variable terrain of single track and sections of forest road. This technical trail features rock gardens and north shore styling with technical features such as drop offs and large rocks. Some challenging climbs and tricky descents, estimated to be around 10 miles.
Much of the loops have been reinforced and laid with gravel to make them all-weather trails, and all feature brilliant, flowing singletrack, jumps, rock sections, and enough differences through the seasons to keep even the most technical rider on their toes.
