Mountain Biking Little Blue Trace

Very easy and mostly flat crushed rock trail. Lots of middle of nowhere riding for the most part. Only one big hill at the northernmost end, but it will still make ya sweat a bunch. Lots of walkers and joggers on the trail too.

Best to start from the MO 78 parking lot, ride north, come back and then head to the south part of the trail, as there are no places to get water or anything.

I really like this trail because of it is a nice relaxing ride. Nothing difficult at all, and plenty of people riding it, but not very crowded. I see lots of kids on it with their parents, and lots of seniors riding it as well.

Getting there
Best way to get to the MO 78 lot is via MO 7. It is about 1 mile west of the traffic circle by Lake City ammuntion plant. Other lots to start from that are good are at I-70 and Little Blue Parkway lot (north of the interstate about 1/4 mile on east side of road) and the north end of the trail at Blue Mills Road. Take MO 7 north to Blue Mills, then a mile west.
