SCCC Spring Tune-up at the Paint Rock Valley Lodge

April 1 & 2


Join us for a weekend of cycling and fun at Paint Rock Valley Lodge in Estillfork, AL about 45 mins from Huntsville.  Secluded deep in the hills and valleys on County Road 9, the lodge is home to a unique collection of rustic decor, much of which comes from a bygone era.   The walls of the ground floor of the facility are filled corner to corner with antique fishing gear, signs, advertisements and other memorabilia reminiscent of the past.

 We will have both short (30- 44 mile) and long (62-70 mile) rides on both Saturday and Sunday.  The short rides will stay in the Paint Rock Valley while the longer ride on Saturday will climb out of the Valley up to Skyline Mountain.


Rides will start at 10 AM on Saturday and 9 AM on Sunday

DAY 1:
Long- Hytop-Belvidere (~74mi)

Medium Route - upper and middle valley (~42mi)

Short- upper Valley  (~30mi)

DAY2 Routes:
long route (~60mi)

medium route (~50mi)

short route (~42mi)

Rooms in the lodge are available 3/31 & 4/1 (Friday and Saturday night).  There are 18 rooms in the lodge, all with 2 double beds, and 2 also have 2 bunk beds.  A men's bathroom & women’s bathroom are at the end of hall.  The proprietor, Mr. Eddie Prince, can supply a cook for 25 people or more, but the kitchen is available for use if we have less than that number.  The cost is $25/night/person if staying 2 nights, $35/night/person if staying 1 night.

Please let us know if you would like to reserve a room ASAP.    If you want come for the day and go riding that’s fine too.  The lodge and grounds are quite interesting, with a stage, pool, campfire pit, and simulated “town from the old west”.  See
