Vulture's Knob facilities
pavilion | restrooms | showers
When you arrive at Vulture's Knob, you will want to park and then head in to the pavilion. You will need to stop there to sign a release from and purchase your day pass if your not a member, simply drop a $5.00 donation in the orange can. Since this is a private facility used for public enjoyment and for safety reasons, you must fill out the rider release form completely and make sure that you answer all questions clearly and honestly.

After you sign in and once you are ready to go, clip in and proceed to the trail head, look for the sign that says "The Beginning" Keep in mind Dr. Knob's Responsibility Code... and enjoy your visit to Vulture's Knob.
Trails are well marked and rated on ability. First off...Vulture's Knob is not a first timers trail. If this is your first time mountain biking we highly suggest you hone your skills and fitness prior to hitting up this trail system. Along the way you will encounter various obstacles, most are well marked with options. Look for the Red/Yellow arrows. At these points in the trail its up to you to make a decision based on your skill level, both arrows will eventually converge after the obstacles back onto the main trail. It's about a risk vs reward payout on this trail system. The more technical "red" features are usually shorter in distance, but you gotta have skills. The "yellow" bypass are longer, but are much easier. Often lacking any advanced features.
Red is RAD
Yellow is MELLOW
The red arrow is a more advanced technical trail or obstacle.
The yellow is your friend, an easier option with low risk.
