Mountain Biking Decorah Mtb Trail System

*****   Add a review
#3 of 97 mountain bike trails in Iowa
#393 in the world

You can get a map from Decorah bicycles shop on College Drive open 361 days a year which I highly
recommend you get as you can get lost easily. Several trails of singletrack interconnected to eachother.
Good sections of uphill up to 1000 feet of climbing. Starting at the first trailhead on the left is the most
well known route but there really is no specified direction as these are several small trails networked
together. There is even an area at the top of the hill where you can ride on logs and large fallen trees with
technical jumps. Best trail system I have ridden in Iowa.
