DISC GOLF COURSE

We have a full 18 hole disc golf course located at the Outdoor Adventure Center! Our course features a mixture of long-open fairways to short-technical holes, and it weaves through a thick forest surrounding the challenge course. The course has 36 concrete tee pads, and 36 basket positions that are rotated monthly. The fairways are well maintained and open to the public to play or walk.

We host two professionally sanctioned tournaments each year. For any information on events, feel free to ask any of the employees in the gear center. We also sell PDGA approved golf discs inside the gear center, and we have a limited number of discs available for students to rent for free.

Here is a map of the course, and a map on Google.

OUTDOOR ADVENTURE BIKE TRAIL

The bike trail is located on the south side of Culver, just west of Cain Sports Complex.

The trail is a 5 mile circuit comprised of four different loops. The trail has been professionally designed for both bicycle and pedestrian traffic. It loops around a pond and continues along a dirt trail through a variety of woods and fields. The trail provides exciting fitness opportunities away from busy streets as well as relaxing opportunities for walks along wooded paths. It is home to a variety of wildlife that enriches the experience.

The trail is open to the public from 5:00 AM to 10:00 PM. If the trail is closed due to inclement weather or muddy conditions, the front gate will be locked. You can find if the trail is currently closed by checking the Outdoor Adventure Facebook page. The Outdoor Adventure Center offers rental bikes, clinics and group rides to help develop good mountain biking skills and connect groups of bikers.

When is the trail open?

Trail hours are 5:00am-10:00pm.

We also close the trail when it is too wet or muddy for use. Our trail is in a low lying flood plain and has clay-based soil. This can lead to some significant time of trail closure while the trail dries out, especially in the winter months. We love using the trail and get it open as quickly as possible, but we close it to protect the trail for future users. If the trail gets footprints and bike tire tracks in it while it is wet it will lead to significant erosion issues and cause lasting damage.

Trail status updates can be found on our Facebook page as well as Mountain Bike Project.

Is a waiver required to use the trail?

All trail users must have a signed waiver on file. Once the waiver is filled out one time it does not need to be filled out again. There are blank waivers at the kiosk at the trail head and a mail box to put the completed waivers in. You can also fill out a waiver at the Outdoor Adventure Center.

In addition to completing the waiver once, we do ask trail users to sign in at the kiosk each time they use the trail.
