The MTB100 and 100k are both a full loop course that connects many public and private properties. Nearly all of the private property trails are strictly off limit to the public, other than on race day. Please respect the rights of private property owners and do not poach private trails. Long live the Mohican MTB100.

Note to racers regarding horses on the Blue Trail:
Horses may be traveling along a short section of the Blue Trail from the end of the snowmobile trail, crossing SR97 to CR3234, about five miles past aid station one. Although notices have been put up requesting that they avoid this section of trail until 1pm, this is a public horse trail. If you encounter a horse, YOU MUST, stop and walk your bike or pull your bike off the trail to allow them to pass. Horses often view moving bicycles as predators and can panic, causing a real danger to the rider! Be sure to talk to the horseman as you approach and as they pass since this will help put the horses at ease. If an incident occurs because of your neglect of this rule, you may be disqualified.

 

Facilities: Conference Center/Campground with full hookups available and plenty of primitive camping and local motels near. Private hot showers near the finish line.
