Arkell Day Pass

The Arkell Spring Grounds trails are on Private Land. You must be a GORBA Member to ride there. If you are a member elsewhere and don’t want to buy a full year’s GORBA Membership, you can buy a $10 day pass. You will need a pass for every day you visit the Arkell Trails.

Donate to GORBA

Donations top up what the membership fees pay for – insurance, tools, materials etc. If you love the trails and can afford to donate more than just your $40 membership fee, you will be greatly assisting GORBA to improve the trails quicker and better. Every little bit helps. Thanks!
