Course Description

Seven Oaks is a cross-country mountain bike course laid out among the Seven Oaks ski and snow tube hills, with much of the trail on the back side of the ski slope. You will find breathtaking climbs, fast and flowy flats and descents, bridges, bermed corners, and technical switchbacks. There’s something for everyone in the seven miles of awesome singletrack that winds through the wooded hills and valleys and crosses Coal Creek just west of Boone and the Des Moines River.
