2017 State Parks Rain Policy: If a ½ inch of rain is forecast 24 hours prior to the event or the day of the event, the State Parks System may cancel the event. Should we have to cancel an event in order to comply with this policy, we will issue a race credit to all registered athletes good for entry into any other TBF Mountain Bike event in 2017. We have proposed an alternate “rain course” (a combination of jeep trails and paved roads) that may be used in the event of rain to prevent trail degradation.

The MTB Celebration race course is on multi-use trails within the Granite Bay State Park on Folsom Lake. The course features a fun, challenging combination of twisting single-track, wide double track, rolling cross-country with lots of turns that flow through the oak and pine forests. The course is perfect for first-timers and exciting fun for all levels. Please be respectful of other trail users including hikers and equestrian riders in this state park. All events are rain or shine, the course is great to ride in all weather. Course Map
