So how does our poker ride work? We’ll have 5 primary card stations set up along the East & West Valley Trails in Lory SP. You roll up to one, confirm your entry and pick a card. We will make note of your card selection on our roster and enter it on your official playing card. In order to remain good stewards of park trails and resources, we will not be sending everyone on with actual cards. You will then ride on to the next stop.
