Dual Sport A, B, and C routes available both days. ‘A’ routes are the toughest and include all manner of 2-track and some single track trail. ‘B’ routes are a mix of maintained and un-maintained roads and should be considered “Hero” routes for Adventure riders. The ‘C’ routes are big bike friendly and will be paved roads along with maintained and semi-maintained dirt roads.

Adventure riders have two riding options. You can ride the Dual Sport C routes which take you from Payson to Young for lunch and back to Payson for the banquet Saturday night, or opt for the point-to-point ride which will leave Payson Saturday morning, spend Saturday night in Young, and return to Payson on Sunday. Thank You to the Arizona Adventure Riders Group for helping us with the Adventure routes this year.
