Van Hagar was built to connect our Cross Country trails to the Upper Village area. This bi-directional trail ties together logging roads with technical, cross country singletrack to form a trail that is the backbone of our Thursday Night Race League. Van Hagar starts in the Upper Village & ends at the intersection with Elks Club after crossing Northern Lights Road. Climbing Van Hagar to Elks Club & descending on the lower Summit Trail makes a great cross country loop.

Average Ride Time: 15 minutes
