Not very big, but lots of fun stuff to do. Usually up there once or twice a month.

Staging Area
The staging area is set up for both parking and picnicking. There are shaded picnic sites spaced throughout the area. Restrooms, drinking water, barbecue grills, and fire pits (bring your own wood) are available.

Motorcycle/ATV Area
There are many trails throughout the motorcycle/ATV area. Most of the trails in the park are beginner or intermediate with just a few expert trails. The trails are designated as two-way in direction, so use caution when negotiating blind curves, hills, and jumps. Keep to the right of the trail as much as possible.

Hangtown MX Track
The Hangtown MX Track, which is home to the annual national outdoor MX championship, is privately operated year round for practice by AMP Racing. The track is just over a mile in length with challenging terrain and high jumps for expert level motocross riders. The track is watered and groomed daily when in operation. For track schedule and information contact AMP Racing at 209-656-9682 or

Practice Tracks
Just below the Staging Area is a MX Practice Track and ATV Practice Track on separated courses. The tracks consist of jumps and banked turns intended for intermediate to advanced level riders. Tracks are groomed and watered on a semi-regular basis and riders are advised to ride with caution.

Kid’s Tracks
The Kid’s Track facility is limited to riders ages 14 years and younger. The facility is divided into two separate tracks. The 70cc Beginner Kid’s Track is for beginner-level children on motorcycles and ATVs 70cc and under. The 110cc Intermediate Kids’s Track is for intermediate-level riders on motorcycles and ATVs 110cc and under. Both areas are for young OHV enthusiasts to develop riding skills under the safety of direct adult supervision.

Quarter Midget Track
The Quarter Midget Track is used by the American Quarter Midget Association (HotLine: (916)491-5437) for both practice and competitive events. Eight to 12-year-olds race these scaled down versions of midget racing cars for trophies and prestige. This track now has lights allowing for racing in the cooler evenings.

Go-Kart Track
The Go-Kart Track is a Grand Prix-style track that has many intricate twists and turns. This track is used by several categories of competitive go-karts. The racing is very fast and exciting. The track is operated by Racecraft, open for practice on a regular basis. For information call 985-6009 or go to

4 X 4 Area
The 4 x 4 area is open to 4 x 4's, buggies, Pilots, and Odysseys. For safety reasons, motorcycles and ATVs are not permitted to use this area.The 4 x 4 area is a haven for 4-wheel drive enthusiasts that love our mud. We have a very heavy clay that is extremely challenging for our mud enthusiasts. Just remember, if you get stuck, you are responsible for getting yourself out.

In addition, we have constructed obstacles in the 4-wheel drive obstacle course. We now have the Stairsteps, Frametwister, Mini-Rubicon, Mud Pit, Gravel Pit, and Dry River Bed. The obstacles range from very easy to extremely difficult. Be careful, as it is very easy to damage your vehicle.
