ABOUT THE VENUE
WELCOME TO THE FAMILY.
Purcell Trench Ranch is an outdoor entertainment venue. The property is just under 90 acres in size. It is located in beautiful North Idaho, between mile markers 518 and 519 on the east side of Highway 95. Bonners Ferry, ID is only 11 miles south of the venue. Mountain Mafia Entertainment operates the venue and currently hosts multiple off-road motorsports events throughout the year. The venue has been fully engineered for multi-day events and spectators in mind.
“Simply put, Mountain Mafia is the best wheeling venue to hit the Northwest so far. It’s the most innovative design and layout to date! Super easy access and great camping, even with a big truck and trailers. Awesome bog pit, drag lanes and hill n hole racing! Without a doubt the best, west of the Mississippi!”
-Steven Adair. Co-founder of NMRA.
The venue has been designed to handle and entertain all types of people. Our wide roads loop for easy access. The camping spots are located off the roads and in the parked out treed areas. The sites are off the roads for peace and safety. Bring your tent or the biggest RV if you got it and camp for the weekend. At this time, the camping is primitive. No potable water or electricity available.
“Best camp grounds in North Idaho!”
“IF YOU BUILD IT, THEY WILL COME.” Well, we built and designed all the action around the spectator. You do not have to be a motorhead to enjoy the venue. Within the fairgrounds area, you can watch all the NMRA racing, Hill n Hole, play pit, big air jumps, rock crawling and grab some food from our vendors. There are 12 stadium lights that light up the fairgrounds at night so the action keeps rolling. If you want to walk around, you can witness some of the natural and man-made built hill climbs and monster crawling features.
OFF-ROAD VENUE FEATURES
Most of our events are open-wheeling. If you and your crew have trucks or utv’s (must have roll cage and seat belts for all passengers), bring them and wheel the property. The NWMRA organizes side-by-side straight tracks and hill n holes courses. All courses are irrigated so they are consistently maintained for optimum racing. Racing is open to all. Try your hand at all the Purcell Trench Ranch has to offer:
Mild to Wild Trails * Hill Climbs * Slick Wall * Tire Section * Mud Play and Bog Pits * Big Air Jumps * Night Wheeling * Multiple Rock Courses * Natural Features
The fairgrounds are centrally located around camping, spectating and courses. You can easily just stay in the fairgrounds area to watch all the action, grab some food from the vendors and listen to music. The area is setup with chain-link fencing for safety. It is a great place for the family to watch the day and night action! There is also a deck ship water cannon that shoots water over 150 feet. On a hot summer day, kids love the spray to cool down.
