RIDE DESCRIPTIONS

2016 ROCKY MOUNTAIN JAMBOREE

Special thanks to Big O Tires and Arctic Cat who are co-titles of the event this year - the Jamboree would not be possible without their generous support. Also, thanks to all of the businesses who are sponsoring rides and supporting the Jamboree as vendors.

All rides leaving from the Richfield City Park, the Fairgrounds, or the Sevier Valley Center will leave from town and will not require trailering. Rides leaving from other locations in Richfield will trailer to points outside of the area. The staging area for each ride can be found in the parentheses just after the ride number and name.

Please note that unless the ride description indicates, lunch will not be provided.

#1 Mountain Man Marathon (Fairgrounds)
No matter what you’re thinking, the Mountain Man Marathon is not for coonskin caps and black powder rifles. What is it, you ask? It is an exciting "marathon" or endurance run along the Paiute Trail. The ride is for mountain men and women who are up for the challenge of spending four days and three nights on the trail. The ride generally covers close to 300 miles with riders camping out under the stars. There will be access to towns along the way where riders can fill up with gas and restock supplies. Except for the Monday evening dinner, all meals will be on your own, so be sure to pack lightweight food. Also, in light of the fact that the Mountain men and women will be missing a few things "back at the ranch", there will be a good number of prize drawings along the way - just for them. Because of the number of miles traveled on the Mountain Man, riders should expect every type of terrain – steep, rocky, and narrow. Riders should also be prepared for every type of weather. The Mountain Man leaves from the Fairgrounds on Monday morning at 9:00 am and will return to civilization on Thursday afternoon. Trailers are not allowed on the ride but the ride is UTV friendly for those with machines 50" or less wide. The ride is rated for "Advanced" riders only! The Mountain Man allowed for up to 30 individuals.

#2 Chief Arapeen Special (Ogden’s)

This 50 mile ride climbs from the trailhead east of Mayfield to the top known as the Skyline Drive, which is one of the longest and highest roads in the United States as it crowns the Wasatch Plateau. You’ll top out on White Mountain with a view of the landscape that Chief Arapeen commanded 150 years ago. The ride slips below some large rockslides, through the swamps and down the Pinchot trail back to the staging area. The ride is for "Advanced" riders and will require you to trailer your quad 40 miles north to the little town of Mayfield. It is also for machines that are 50" or less wide.
