Trail Description
About this trail
Lots of singletrack run through the park, which is heavily wooded. Lots of big climbs and long downhills, some jumps and obstacles made out of logs, stream crossings, tight switchback curves, and what appear to be either sinkholes or abandoned mine shafts (these are surrounded by orange fencing, but keep an eye out for them). There is one main trail that runs through middle of park and all others branch off of that for the most part. Have fun!

Review: Rode here over Labor Day 2016, has the potential to be great but its very overgrown. I am guessing there is not very much traffic on it. The dirt gets kind of slimy, so it is a little slippery.

Review: Mowed path through weeds and river flood ground, waste of time, not worth stopping or riding.

Review: This trail is not worth riding, I wouldn't call this mountain biking. I am far from being a pro rider but there is nothing technical here. IT IS A FLAT MOWED PATH THROUGH WEEDS AND UNDERBRUSH, NOT MOUNTAIN BIKING!! There is random dirt mounds in the middle of the trail to try and keep it interesting but it just sucks. There is tons of forest in the Dubuque area to make an amazing trail, they should just start over in a different spot...

Review: Good trail, pretty technical for Iowa. A few steep inclines and some good rocky areas. I agree with a lot of the reviews, it's hard to find! When your on N Cascade Road from hwy 20 turn left at the zoo (Storybook Hill) onto the gravel road and follow it back to park at the gate. Happy trails! :))

Review: First time there! A little hard to find and the gate had a park closed sign on it, but still had a worn path around it...odd, but after getting back there and riding it was a blast! Lots of fun trails and technical parts! A great ride overall!

Review: Boy are the locals passionate about this system! And speaking of locals, make sure you secure a tour to get the most out of this system. Lots of sketch tech and tight twisty punchy trail. I've had fun here, would be awesome to see locals get organized and take a bit better care of the property (i.e. trail organization, way finding, invasive species management, etc.) Much potential. *edit: (6/7/14) just rode there again, locals have been putting in a TON of work and the trails are ridin' fantastic!

Review: Great singletrack. The only reason I did not give a 5 star, was because of the lack of track directions. Once I decided to just go with it, the trails became a lot more fun.

Review: Not much direction to the trails although they were fun and technical. Nice bridge drop into the creek and some single rail across other parts of the trails. All around good fun looking forward to coming back and tearing up more trails.
