preparation . As in the morning , the main line will traverse a mix of dirt roads and wider paths and the rocks are resigned to background noise compared to earlier . There is one difficult bit of main trail toward the end of the loop that is a consequence of the terrain and access but be sure the RORR representatives are willing and able to assist as needed . The fun level really amps up when choosing to tackle the options as the single track is truly spectacular . And , if you make it through one of the last , and most challenging options , where you ascend the mountain side through a tangle of rocky trail and tight trees , you may be rewarded with a hearty cheer and snack from the fire as you pass by an accommodating welcoming party at a rustic cabin atop the hill .
Not far beyond the cabin , the trail returns to the blacktop for a return to the starting area concluding another year ’ s Mighty RORR . The members of RORR are very grateful for the cooperation of the various landowners that provide the access for the event and well as the support of Rausch Creek Trailriders Club , the North End Fire Company , and the ECEA and its sponsors . Make your plans to join in next year , but be sure to watch the website https :// www . rorr . org / for sign-up information in late summer / early-fall as the event is known to sell-out quickly !
