The Beginning

Welcome to SQUIGGY’S GNOME ROAM.
For those of you that don’t know Swamp as an organization, you may ask why we do events like Squiggy?

  • Sending you home with smiles and memories is only the beginning.

  • Swamp has been building and maintaining trails for the past 35 years.

Fundraisers along with volunteers are necessary for us to continue to do so.
As your hosts for Squiggy, we wish you the greatest experience possible, on your bikes, feet and having fun, with satisfaction knowing that you have taken part in supporting our trails and that you leave the event eager to return in 2024. Yes, planning for 2024 is already in the works.
You received a link to necessary information that is located here in this section. Please take the time to read what interests or pertains to you. It will help you familiarize yourself with the content of the weekend.

This is a rain or shine event. No refunds


With best wishes and sincere hopes,
Your Swamp Squiggy’s Gnome Roam event team
