Race Description: Vultures Knob is 125 acres along the majestic and mighty Killbuck River in the rolling hills of Wooster Ohio. The facilities are open 365 days a year for open riding via donations or memberships! This venue offers a glimpse into the past with old school fall line trails mixed with newer design concepts and features. The trails offer up some of the most challenging singletrack and most unique man made outdoor trail features the area has to offer. Over 110 races have been run at the Knob including epic 12 hour and 24 hour races, cyclocross, adventure races along with the popular annual cross-country race series.
