2022 SAGEBRUSH SAFARI XC & GRAVEL

GENERAL RACE INFO

SAGEBRUSH SAFARI is back for the FOURTH year under Quick n’ Dirty.  The 2022 Cross Country course will be roughly 27 Miles with tons of fun singletrack! This folks is true cross country course. For the true beginners that aren’t used to that much time in the saddle we are also offering a 19 mile course. Additionally, we will have a 40 Mile Gravel course that will take you on all of the fun fire roads that Lake Morena and Corral Canyon OHV Park have to offer.

The Sagebrush Safari XC & Gravel courses are on multi-use trails and public roads. This means that you may encounter off-road vehicles and dirtbikes, as well as vehicles on the paved roads. We will do our best to limit the traffic on the trails and roads, but we cannot forcibly stop people from using them. Please ride with caution and be courteous if you encounter any on or off-road traffic.

RIDE WITH GPS 27 MILE XC MTB COURSE MAP 

27 MILE COURSE:

  • .The course will start out at the venue, just across the street from the Navy’s Camp Morena at around 3000ft. Once the gun goes off you will be sent on a 6.5 mile climb up Morena Stokes Valley Rd to 4 Corners, then up Los Pinos Rd, just near the top of Los Pinos mountain (4600ft). After you catch your breath and take in the glorious views, get your legs ready for one of the best descents Corral Canyon has to offer, Spur Meadows Trail. After roughly 4 miles of descending you will end up crossing Morena Stokes Valley Rd and on to a fun but challenging single track climb. From here you will jump on Wrangler Trail. This is the trail that makes the Sagebrush Safari as epic as it is. You will experience many types of terrain to include loose dirt, hard pack, massive rock slabs, rock gardens, punchy climbs, and flowy descents. After about 4 miles on Wrangler Trail you will reach Skye Valley Rd. and a few minutes later you will hit a section called Ranger Trail that we have extended to give you a tough yet rideable climb, up to the next section. The next section is one of the most fun fire-roads you’ll experience, Gunslinger Trail. After your done having fun on Gunslinger you’ll reach Morena Stokes Valley Rd and for the final time make your way back up to 4 corners. Once you reach 4 corners you can start thinking about cracking open that tasty beer (or favorite non-alcoholic beverage) and jump right on to Kernan Cycle trail. Kernan is the final descent back down to the paved road. Once on the paved road you’re roughly 2 fast miles to the finish line.

GRAVEL COURSE INFO, CLASSES, and SCHEDULE:

RIDE WITH GPS GRAVEL COURSE MAP 

GRAVEL COURSE:

  • The course will start out at the venue, just across the street from the Navy’s Camp Morena. Once the gun goes off you will be sent on a 6.5 mile climb up Morena Stokes Valley Rd to 4 Corners and then a short fire-road descent on Los Pinos Rd. You will continue your descent on Skye Valley Rd, a fun and challenging dirt road. From there you will hit Corte Madera Rd and experience a fairly technical climb. After Corte Madera you will reach a historic trail known as Espinosa Trail. At some point Espinosa will force you to dismount your trusty steed a few times, throw it over your shoulder, and hike your bike roughly 50ft or so each time. From there you will eventually return to Los Pinos Rd and continue your climb almost most to the top of Los Pinos mountain. Once you’re up there where the air is thinner and cleaner you will start a descent on rough pavement (PLEASE BE CAREFUL) until you reach Morena Stokes Rd and then descend a little more. After the series of descents, you will have a small climb up Skye Valley Rd until you reach Morena Stokes Rd, and then you get to descend on the paved road all the way back to where you started. Once completed you will have ridden 40 Miles and experienced approximately 5,000 feet of elevation gain.
