PLAN YOUR TRIP

Three days of epic, comin' atcha.

Roam Fest Brevard will take place at REEB Ranch, located just minutes away from local trails in Dupont State Forest and Pisgah National Forest. A former dairy farm, REEB Ranch will take your breath away with a stunning vista of rolling green grass encircled by a lush temperate rainforest. 

Just 40 minutes from Asheville, Brevard is the launching point for hundreds of miles of singletrack thanks to the small mountain town's proximity to the southern Appalachian Mountains. With epic vistas, beautiful, challenging terrain, and a variety of trails for every level of rider, Brevard is considered by many to be one of the best mountain bike destinations in the world.
