Glen Helen Trail Riding Days

California Trail Rides

Glen Helen Raceway may be known to the off-road world for hosting AMA Pro Motocross, FIM Motocross (MX1, MX2, USGP), ATV, and Short Course racing, but starting this year, off-road dirt bike enthusiasts can look forward to another great event – Glen Helen Ride Days.

The Glen Helen Ride Days are a brand new reding event that takes place on the last Friday of each month. The Ride Days will consist of trail riding on specially designed motorcycle trails laid out by legendary racer Gary Jones.

The motorcycle trails are all clearly marked and range in skill level from beginner rider to expert, taking you throughout the vast Glen Helen facility, offering great riding as well as spectacular views of California’s Inland Empire.

Gary Jones himself will be leading three major trail rides throughout the day – one in the morning, one at midday, and one in the evening.

In addition to riding with a motocross legend on one of America’s premier racetracks, there will be free overnight camping for participants in the Glen Helen Ride Day.

Why drive all the way out to the desert to ride motorcycles off-road, when you can just head on out to Glen Helen and have a great time?

The first Glen Helen Ride Day is scheduled to take place January 28. Gate fees are $20 for adults, $10 for children 6-12, free for 6 and under. For more information, check out
