In it's best form(2002-2013) Hurkey Creek Park hosted thousands of avid Mountain Bikers, from all over the world. It boasted some of SoCal's finest trails. Once a stop on the 24 Hours of Adrenalin XC/Endurance and Idyllwild Spring Challenge venues....Hurkey Creek offered something for everybody of all skill levels. It was neither too easy, nor difficult....but kept it interesting enough to have your senses at full alert.

Despite all the rocks, roots, lung-searing climbs, ruts and pine cones - all Hurkey trails generally flowed very well. The descents were speed-building exercises in total FUN. At its prime, all trails were meticulously groomed with total riding satisfaction in mind. It was this trait alone....that made us keep coming back.

When the Adrenalin series left in 2010 - all trail work came to a grinding halt. Since it was located on US Forest Service land, IMBA could not do a thing about it. Overgrowth and erosion took its toll. The nail in the proverbial coffin was the devastating 2013 Summer Fire, which obliterated ALL the best trails at this park(see below)
