Mountain Biking Bangert Island

****   Add a review
#34 of 168 mountain bike trails in Missouri
#2,600 in the world

This trail is between the Katy Trail and the Missouri River just south of downtown St. Charles. 4.2 miles of singletrack, with some sandy areas, have been squeezed onto the island. The main loop is a figure 8 designed to be accessible to the beginning rider with minimal elevation change. The Sandy Loop weaves in and out of the drainage troughs alongside the river edge, offering a change of pace from the flats on the main loops.

    Good trail. Well maintained, mostly hard pack dirt, some really sandy areas on one of the loops. One end has a bit of a small terrain park, jumps, boards, logs, etc. nothing super intense. As someone just getting back into mountain biking; this was a good, somewhat challenging trail to help relearn skills, and more experienced riders can have a bit of fun.

    Love this trail system. Great for a beginner, but has some features for more advanced riders also.

    Pretty boring really
    Good place to take a newbie
    Sandy areas are too hard without a fat bike

    Fun beginner trail. Very well laid out in river bottom. One loop still blocked from flooding damage earlier this year.

    Good fun trail situated on an island in the Missouri River. Nice tacky soil and starting to get some man mead obstacles in the form of a step up jump with more to come.

    Nice tight turns through some sandy loam soil, few if any obstacles. Great views I the river at a few points along the way. Go fast and it can be a nice challenge. As of June 1st 2013 it is completely under water, Mother Nature really got a hold of this trail.
