Ride the Whiskey Off-Road. Choose from three different distance options of 15, 30 or 50 miles; each consisting of a carefully curated set of trails in Prescott, AZ.

Starting on Prescott’s historical (and lively) Whiskey Row and climbing into the beautifully distracting views of Prescott National Forest, riders will connect some of the area’s most exhilarating (and challenging) pieces of singletrack, double track, gravel roads and the occasional paved segment. In 2019 the course (30 & 50 Proof) features the exceptional culmination of hard-work, community spirit and grass-roots fund raising that is the fast, flowy and fun Spence Basin Trail System.

During your three-day visit to Prescott, enjoy being submerged in the mountain bike industry. Mingle with the most bike-minded people you’ll ever encounter while appreciating the area’s wild wild west heritage and feeling welcomed by its modern day appreciation for the outdoor enthusiast.

With a finisher’s award in the form of a well-earned commemorative pint glass emblazoned with the distance you’ve finished, the community concert w/ free live music, a cold beverage (gratis) from Four Peaks Brewing Co. and the comfort of the former Arizona Territorial capitol’s shaded lawn waiting at the finish line for all Off-Road participants…this is a finish line that will make every mile worth the effort.

The ‘Whiskey’ has a 96% finish rate. However, it’s no walk in the park.


**Please enjoy safely pre-riding the surrounding Thumb Butte Recreation Park trails with caution for other trail users and look out for blind corners

 Amazing route. I pre-rode March 23. The starting climb is killer. Steep in sections but road for the first half. After the climb, rocky singletrack of previous years, leading to I think what has been called "cramp hill" (anybody else, please feel free to correct me on that). That's about it for the climbing other than a few very short climbs. So much of the back half of the course is awesome singletrack. It made me think that Prescott has definitely become a premier mountain bike destination. I especially liked the garden grove/garden party sections. I've done the Whiskey a half-dozen or so times going back to the third one. Based on my pre-ride, this is the best Whiskey course I've ridden. Kudos to Prescott Mountain Bike Alliance, Over the Hill Gang, and of course Epic Rides for all of the work that has been done to create/maintain/organize, etc...can't wait for the Whiskey!
