The 52 mile Epic Bike Trail Loop in Big Bend Ranch State Park has become the premier mountain biking route for serious off-road cycling enthusiasts. Angell Expeditions rents bikes, helmets and other gear for this, and also will guide new riders thru the course, along with interpretive talk on the history, geology, plants and wildlife.
Two Day Bike Tour
Plan 2 to 3 days to cycle this route. A support shuttle to carry camping gear, food, and bike supplies will be necessary. We can provide all of the above services and help plan your itinerary to make the journey safely and efficiently. This is a serious technical trail, but with huge amounts of payoff in excitement, scenery and remote desert beauty. Make sure you are in good physical shape and your bike skills are up to par. Smaller warm-up trails on the Epic can be ridden prior to the entire loop to test your skills. Watch the video to get a small taste of this life-changing experience!
