High Ground Mountain Bike Preserve


Team fun is the name of the game for the Arkansas-Missouri Adventure Jamboree. We will have facilitated adventure activities set up for student athletes to participate in as they choose, but the main event is a team adventure ride on the High Ground Trails in Neosho, MO.

Student athletes will join their coaches in their ride groups to explore the trail system at Morse park. Coaches will select a level of challenge suitable for each ride group ranging from easiest (mild) to hardest (spicy). The courses are designed to eliminate two-way traffic at any point on the trail system. All levels will pass two Adventure break stops that coaches can choose to include or skip for each lap of the course.

  • Adventure Ride option opens at 11:00am on Saturday and closes at 5:00
  • Pre-reg for an adventure start time HERE, (closes Wednesday at midnight) or sign up at Adventure Check-in tent
  • Coaches must maintain the 6:1 or 8:2 ratios, just like in practice, on these rides (you can combine with other teams to maintain ratios)
  • The Adventure Ride will be approximately 1-2 hours in duration.

BRING WATER! There is limited water onsite.

Course Map can be found HERE.
