April 22 May 6 June 24 July 8 Aug 26 Oct 21 What's this Hone Quarry area we speak of?? Most people have heard of the iconic Reddish Knob for its views and trails, but most people don't know that just down the road is another zone of local favorites. The trails have steeper downhills and more technical sections than Reddish and the climbs are easier. -Riders will meet the van at the Hone Quarry Recreation area parking lot for pickup and shuttle back to the top of the mountain. -In the morning, park at the Hone Quarry Recreation area by 8:30am to be ready to go at 9:00. First run to the top is at 9:00; shuttle leaves in approximately hour cycles from the Hone Quarry Recreation area parking lot; last shuttle at 4:00pm or 2hrs before dark, whichever is earlier. -Please note that the shuttle won't run, and you'll be refunded if fewer than 7 people book for a specific date or if there is significant rain in the forecast. Cancellation notification will be made by noon the day prior to shuttle.
