EOTB Fall Camp
Sep 30 – Oct 2 all-day

Description

The EOTB will gather at Black Donald Tent and Trailer park to meet with good friends and enjoy a few days of wheeling as we near the end of the wheeling season. While the air will be cooler, and the nights a little crisper, we will warm our hands and feet by the camp fire and warm our hearts with friendly conversation and maybe a few laughs.

As we typically have a smaller group for this event, only one trail is usually run, and tends to be moderate to challenging.
