Absolutely. Your Park Pass allows you access to any and all of our trails under your own peddle power.

  • STOP, DISMOUNT and MOVE WELL CLEAR when a shuttle vehicle is passing

  • Ride SINGLE FILE at all times

  • NEVER ride down the shuttle roads

These AREN’T optional requests and are rules implemented to keep you safe while riding at Dirt Farm.

Repeated non compliance of any of these requirements will result in revocation of your Park Pass….you’ve been warned!
