Event Overview

Enjoy mountain bike orienteering (aka MTBO) at Lacamas Lake Park, a large wooded area near Camas, WA. The area features a complex network of canyons and spurs, with a beautiful series of waterfalls, cascades and potholes; some open rocky places, and an extensive mt bike friendly trail network. All trails are shared with hikers. A helmet is mandatory. There will be one course design for the intermediate/advanced mountain biker. Distance with optimal route choice will be between eight and 10 km, with the winning time of about 50 minutes. If you are an experienced mountain biker but new to orienteering, we will have free clinics as needed to show you the basics of the sport

The trails at Lacamas Park are sensitive to rain and we will cancel the race if it rains on Saturday or Sunday morning.  Though pre-registration is not required, it is highly recommended.

In case we need to notify you of cancellation due to rain, please contact the Meet Director, Sue Grandjean, to sign up - hikeabike@gmail.com
