Mountain Biking Council Bluffs Trail

****   Add a review
#15 of 169 mountain bike trails in Missouri
#1,376 in the world

Great trail that circles a large lake in the Mark Twain National Forest located in the Council Bluffs campground. Has multiple trail heads located at the campground, boat ramp and beach area. Trail offers a variety of challenges but none to overwhelming for a beginner wanting to get their feet wet in mountain biking. A well conditioned rider can easily complete this trail in 2 to 2.5 hours. Also connects into the Ozark Trail if you desire a longer ride. Great scenery as it winds around the lake. A must ride!
