The Pocatello Pedal Fest Enduro will be a HUGE adventure on the bike.

Those brave souls who choose take on this epic challenge will be met with glory and bragging rights as the Pocatello Pedal Fest will be a true "East versus West" showdown. Do you have what it takes?

Course Descriptions:

Stage 1 - Upper Valve House - A 15 minute climb from Scout Mountain campground takes you to the start of stage 1. To start it off, drop from the East Fork Mink Creek into a wide open, kamikaze downhill on an old two track. Get on the pedals and stay off the brakes! Ruts, stream crossings and plenty of room to work with should get the early morning blood flowing. Stage 1 will end just before a short climb. Transfer up a quick steep pitch and get ready for Stage 2

Stage 2 - Windago - After a 5 minute transfer, Stage 2 will take off down the tight, twisty singletrack of Windago. Navigate the big rut at the top, stay out of the creek, and rail the countless natural berms through the pine trees. Towards the bottom get back on those pedals and pump your way through the moto whoops to the finish.

Stage 3 - After a longer transfer up Crystal Summit Road, get ready for the fastest stage of the day. One of Pocatello’s most popular downhill’s, Corral Creek is the perfect mix of rocks, roots, tight berms, and wide open sections. Advice? 5 minutes of full gas, no brakes, full enduro.

Stage 4 - After another good transfer up West Fork, arrive at the pink gate leading into Gibson Jack. This will be the longest stage of the day, with roughly 10 minutes of non stop action. Thanks to local volunteers and BLM fire crews, the brush has been cut back, sight lines opened up, and Gibson is ready for a thrashing. Stage 4 starts off through a twisty meadow, flows in and out of the trees through relentlessly rocky, often exposed, off camber sections, and finishes with an all out sprint to the expo area (and the beer). Watch for several sneaky corners in the middle of the stage. Pedaling will once again be a necessary evil, but be careful of the pedal strikers hiding in the tall grass…

Arguably one of the most popular trails in P-Towns trail system. you can connect to pretty much any trail you want to all the way to trail creek area, making some huge loops and routes. West Fork is a beautiful trail all the way to Elk Meadows.

Trail Gibson Jack
Pretty fun trail, not sure it should be a black rating. Aside from a few pops, tight turns and rock gardens there are no features. Could be flowier if it were a bit wider, but a fun descent nonetheless. I climbed up the GJ double track and dropped this, good pairing. There are definitely hikers, so I’d recommend a bell just as an extra buffer.

Gets pretty overgrown in parts, but this is a pretty cool single track forest decent. Buff and curvy.

I ran down this trail on 5/11/20. The trail is in good condition with a few areas that could use some repair but could still easily be ridden. Lots of afternoon shade, plenty of wildlife. Watch out for moose.

If your looking for a fun ride both up hill and down, this is it. Lots of technical rock gardens and float sections. More of a trail for confident riders.

For those not local (like me) and not familiar with trail, there are free range cows everywhere on this trail. Be prepared to find a carwash after for your bike and yourself.
