BVMBA – Lajitas 2020

Camping Trip
February 6-9, 2020

BVMBA is planning group camping trip to the Lajitas, Texas area. We are planning on camping at the Rancho Topanga Campground.  This location has the Lajitas Resort Trails, and the Big Bend Ranch State Park Trails near by. This is a good time of year to visit this area, when it is not too hot to ride. And while everyone back home are complaining about wet trails in February, the trails here are usually dry in this part of Texas, it is the desert. We will be planning on riding three days with 20+ miles of trail riding per day.  Of course you can ride a shorter distance, or even hang out at camp or go hiking, visit the Warnock Center or the Terlingua Ghost Town. There are a number of different things to do if you don’t ride much. You might even decide to go to Beg Bend National Park about 40 miles away.  The club has gone her many times over the years around this time of year when the Chihuahuan Desert Bike Fest was going on.  Since the festival is no more, we are making our own sort of bike festival.  Terlingua is near by where we may visit for dining at the Starlight, or other near by restaurants such as la Kiva Restaurant near Study Butte.

We need to get a head count of those interested in going and make arrangements soon for the group camping. Interested in going, please fill out this Head Count Form before December 20, 2019. Rancho Topanga Campgrounds is a tent camping site, RV campers will need to make alternate arrangements. They may have some exceptions for teardrops and small popups, contact Rancho Topanga.  One of our club members has an RV site reservation at Maverick Ranch RV Park in Lajitas that could be transferred to you, but you will need to speak up for it before it is canceled, first come first server. Contact BVMBAinfo@gmail.com

Camping Location: Rancho Topanga Campgrounds 22403 FM170, Terlingua, TX
Website: http://www.ranchotopanga.com/
