2017 Rothrock Trail Mix Enduro

SMCC is volunteering to manage the timing for this year's Rothrock Trail Mix. More details about the trail mix can be found below.

Happy Valley Biking

Happy Valley Biking is proud to present for the 6th year, the Rothrock TrailMix, on the second Saturday in June - June 10, 2017. The race will begin at the base of Tussey Mountain with the course running on the beautiful trails in Rothrock State Forest.

The objective of our race is to (1) provide for a shorter race course in the Rothrock area - 19 mile "Short Course", (2) provide a race course that uses some of the most technical trails in Rothrock State Forest - 36 mile (MASS/IMBA Epic) course, and (3) to give back to our biking community.

Both courses of this race are designed for the intermediate to advanced technical skill level rider. This is not a good race for a novice or beginner. The trails in Rothrock are naturally rocky and require excellent bike handling skills.

The Rothrock TrailMix is a Mid-Atlantic Super Series (MASS) Endurance Event and an IMBA Epic Ride Route. Proceeds will benefit the two local NICA teams (i.e., Bellefonte Mountain Bike Club and Centre County PA Youth Mountain Biking Team), the local trails and trail system in Rothrock State Forest, as well as the local volunteer groups who help maintain the multi-use system.
