2018 COURSE DESCRIPTION
The final 2018 Palos Meltdown course will be released mid-summer! But we can promise you that the course will meander itself over rolling hills and around lakes and sloughs. Much of the course will be on rolling terrain so riders looking for elevation change won't be disappointed! The course will offer leg stinging climbs and exciting descents. The trails are built for all levels of riding ability. Faster riders will find them much more challenging as obstacles such as ravines and roots become a challenge at speed.
