Howard Prairie Lake, Apserkaha Group Camp. About 30 miles east of Ashland, OR. Situated at 4,500 ft. in elevation it provides a nice getaway from the Rogue Valley in the heat of the summer. Lots of good road and gravel riding, hiking, swimming, and relaxing to be had.
Directions: from I-5 take exit 14 for HWY 66 and head east for about one half mile before turning left onto Dead Indian Memorial Rd. which takes you up and out of the Rogue Valley. After ~17 miles turn right onto Hyatt Prairie Rd. and continue for ~5 miles. You'll turn left at a Y onto Howard Prairie Dam Rd., continue for ~2 miles and the camp ground will be on the left.
We have the Aperkaha Group camp ground reserved Friday September 14th and Saturday September 15th. We need people to be out of the camp ground Sunday September 16th by 10 a.m. so we can clean the grounds. In addition to tent camping there are 12 cabins (each sleep 6-8 people) available and 9 RV sites available for an additional cost. If interested, make sure to register early before they sell out.
Group rides will start at 10 a.m. Saturday morning from the camp ground. There will be three marked routes to choose from, one paved and the other two mixed paved/gravel of various distances. Links to the Ride with GPS routes will be posted online. Click the link to download the .gpx files, cue sheets will be available the day of. This is not a race, there is no timing, its a fun casual no drop ride in the beautiful Southern Cascades.
Food and drink
Registration includes a post ride meal and two drink tickets. Beer, cider, and non-alcoholic beverages will be provided. There is also a full size commercial kitchen at the camp ground available for all other meals.
