      Located adjacent to the historic Meadowdale Speedway, Raceway Woods is now home to mountain biking and hiking trails. Riders will find parking off of Route 31 and additional parking off of Huntley Road. The trails are generally flowy, and smooth, but contain one section called Scarabs Revenge that is more difficult. This section of trail is marked to let riders know when approaching.

      During the peak riding season, workdays are held on Wednesday evenings and Saturday Mornings. As daylight fades, workdays typically are only scheduled on Saturday mornings. Anyone is welcome to help build and add trails.

      GROUP RIDES
      Weather permitting, and during peak riding season, a group ride typically takes place every Tuesday night around 6pm. To keep updated on group rides and other riding events, be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram.
