Pioneer Park (Map)
Prescott is a fantastic area for mountain biking. Just two weeks before the Whiskey Off-Road, this race will be a great, high intensity tune up for those racing the Whiskey. There are a lot of new trails at Pioneer Park. Fast, fun, flowy, singletrack!
There will be free camping at Pioneer Park in dirt lot to the south of the baseball field and in the main paved parking lot (see the map).
