Muscatatuck County Park is one of DINO's favorite race venues. It's a hidden gem for outdoor lovers in Indiana. Featuring a trail system that offers amazing views and ample challenge, the park is one of the few places in Indiana where natural rock climbing is available. There is also camping at the race site, and a gorgeous river valley for kayaking, fishing, or just exploring.

Following the Trail Run, multiple mountain bike events ranging from the extreme downhill event to the novice friendly short-track take place Saturday afternoon and Sunday. DINO offers two kayak trips with shuttles Saturday evening, and Muscatatuck Park's rock climbing expert present a climbing lesson / clinic!
