Please note: We are working on a plan to deal with Social Distancing and making the event as safe as possible. We’ll get the details posted asap.
Glen Park in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania lies right on the border with New Jersey and has some great elevation change for the area. The local mountain bike scene has grown exponentially in the past 5 years, and the Glen Park trail system has born the fruits of this growth. Volunteers take great care of the trails, bringing more and more mountain bikers to the area.
Glen Park drops most of its trails from a single ridge, making for an easy and familiar pedal back to the top. The runs are fast and wide open. There is not a ton of rock in these trails, which is not a common occurrence in Pennsylvania, but you will need to be comfortable with high-speed corners and drops. Dark dirt provides amazing traction for riders who are pushing the limits.
Registration: Saturday 9-2 and Sunday 8-9
Practice: Saturday 9-4
