Na, you have to be a scout there, or work there. its just something I thought I would post up. The best MTB boy scout camp in America is in Norcal, if that tells you anything.

But mostly xc trails and sing track. One pump track, a few very small Djs, and some ladders and log fun. Theres also a lake jump.

One of the troup leaders attended the Jan. BTCEB mtg and mentioned they might open it up to general use during non-scout months. Since there are minors there that they're responsible for, they need to keep it private property when scouts are using the camps and trails.

Hmmm.....our little guy is a Cub Scout. Wonder if that can get us in?
Lots of scout masters and dads with kids in the camp come up and ride the trails, but I think you need to be in a troop at boyscout level.

All the trails are handmade btw, that just makes everything all the better.

I am not sure about the winter though, I do know they rent out cabins of some sort to the general public as but I believe it is going to open next winter for riding. Just remeber that now it is considered privet property. If you are really interested you can drop kevin an e-mail from the site.

So one of the loopholes is that anyone is allowed to rent out one of the cabins or a 3000sq ft lodge and as a result be allowed to ride the trails in the off-season. But currently only half of the trails have marked entrances.
