Mountain Biking Mcfarland Park

***   Add a review
#49 of 94 mountain bike trails in Iowa
#8,909 in the world

Fairly hilly (for Iowa) and sandy in spots. Some trails are mowed paths in the
prairie, others are dirt trails with roots and bridges. Overall, it's a wide trail
and good for beginners.

    The west side of the park is more dirt trail, the east side is more prairie. The west side starts down the hill from the parking lot. Check the map in the parking lot for details. Some sections are off limits to bikes. Some sections have signs,but if it has stairs, it's probably closed to bikes.
    To get to Soper's Mill, head east and north and parallel the interstate until you to a road. Follow the road until you reach a T intersection, then head west (left). The Soper's Mill trail head will on your right before you cross the bridge.
