The Course:

Camp Calvin Crest trails wind through bluffs along the Platte River. All of the single track is in deciduous pine and cedar trees. The trail starts along the top of the bluff with rolling descents and climbs averaging 5% or less. Throughout the trail you’ll climb up and down quickly through ravines, across bridges and finally descend a 100′ bluff via five switchbacks to the river where it flattens before turning inland for a hefty quarter mile climb up to some cabins and a sidewalk that leads back to the parking lot.

The Venue:

Whether you are a first time guest or frequent visitor you will find Calvin Crest a special place. The 250 acres of rolling hills, woods, recreation spaces and activities, hiking trails and scenic views overlooking the Platte River provide a setting for renewal, rest and refreshment of body, mind and soul. No alcoholic beverages are permitted anywhere on the grounds. All of their facilities are smoke free.


From Omaha take Dodge St.west (turns into HWY 6) to 275 West then take exit for NE HWY 36. (Look for race signs). Turn west. At t-intersection turn north onto Old US HWY 275. Turn left at light, across rr tracks onto East Cloverly. At next T intersection on S. Broad, turn right and it will turn into HWY 77.
