VERNON, NJ – Mother Nature apparently has had riding on her mind and gifted the East Coast with warm temperatures throughout a majority of the winter. TheMountain Creek Bike Park Trail Crüe was able to start trail work in early March and by the middle of the month the signs were there that the mountain would be ready sooner than anticipated.
MCBP decided to give the riders what they were asking for and opened the doors ahead of schedule on Saturday, April 2, a full 4 weeks ahead of the scheduled opening day!
More than 300 riders from all over the east coast descended on the bike park to get first runs of the season. What started as a rainy April morning quickly turned a sun filled day with fun, tacky trails.
Mountain Creek Bike Park is now open weekends until mid-June, then seven days a week through the summer.
