A mountain biking festival will take place in Big Bend next month.

The “Chihuahuan Desert Dirt Fest” will take place February 16th through the 18th in the Terlingua/Lajitas area of West Texas.

The featured route of the Dirt Fest is the 54-mile Epic Ride located in Big Bend Ranch State Park on February 18th. The three-day event will offer riding opportunities for all levels of mountain bikers, ranging from the mostly flat ranch roads to the Dome Trail and Rincon Loops, or the Epic Ride, which goes up Fresno Canyon to Sauceda.

Water aid stations will be set up along the routes. If the 54-mile Epic Ride is too much for riders to do in one day, it can be done in two days.

“This is truly an epic event with plenty of adventure, breathtaking views, spirit and soul rejuvenation, and healthy fun in the sun,” said Barrett Durst, superintendent of Big Bend Ranch State Park.

Reservations can be made through the Big Bend Ranch State Park by calling Texas Parks and Wildlife’s Customer Service Center at 512-389-8919. The Bunkhouse costs $35 per bunk nightly, or reserve one of only three rooms in the ranch residence for $100 per night.
