Event Description:

A weekend of trail activities including running, biking, yoga, hiking, live music and more. Festival tickets give you access to all trail activities excluding the running & biking races. Registration for races are separate and include a festival ticket. This event is a fundraiser for the Graham Swamp Trail Crew, the volunteer group that builds and maintains the trail. 

If you are not familiar with the Graham Swamp Mountain Bike Trail you are in for a treat! And a challenge. This trail is the most challenging trail in Flagler Co, possibly even in Florida. There are lots of roots, rocks, steep descents & climbs, soft sand, quick switchbacks...you get the point. Take it all in, it's incredibly beautiful too. 

Where:

Graham Swamp Mountain Bike Trail: 5140 Colbert Lane, Palm Coast, FL. From Hwy 100 turn South on Colbert Lane, go about 2.3 miles, trail is on the left. From PC Parkway, head North on Colbert Lane, trail will on the right about 5 miles.
