Signal Peak Fat Tire Festival
5 September - 6 September


This Labor Day Weekend, load up your mountain bikes and bring your appetites to the 2015 Signal Peak Fat Tire Festival! Guided mountain bike rides, a pit BBQ and serene camping opportunities in the Gila National Forest combine to make this a weekend you wonít want to miss! After the Signal Fire of 2014, Signal Peak Road is still officially closed, meaning a race on the traditional race course is out of the question. So for 2015 we will be celebrating the area by guiding mountain bike rides and enjoying the traditional Saturday night pit BBQ.
