Mountain Biking Ocheyedan Pits

*   Add a review
#76 of 94 mountain bike trails in Iowa
#21,388 in the world

Excellent Beginner/Low Intermidiate trails. There are quite a few random single track, double track, and wide grass hiking trails. All trails a free and open to the public. It would be amazing if you ever seen anyone out there. The trails are located two miles south of Ocheyedan(which has a bike shop, sweet). The 33 acre area has electricity, drinking water, and pit toilets, with picnicking, hiking, mountain biking, fishing, and swimming opportunities available. You can't beat its FREE camping either. Great for low cost family weekend getaways. The trails are maintained by a local rider; well as much as a one man show can do anyway. Enjoy

    I was down in Worthington, mn for work and came down to ride. Maybe it's a good place to bring a kid or the girlfriend for a skinny dip and picnic, but this is not a mtb trail

    Former gravel pit with a mowed trail around it. Swimming area and park present. It's a nice park and swimming area but not much of a trail.

    Mainly mowed six foot wide paths meant for fishers. Two main singletracks about 200 ft long each, one of them was on a skinny raised ridge with water on both sides - fun! I tried a lot of the barely visible paths which did not go through and I became frustrated. Pretty cool wildlife; several large turtles, phesants, and deer. I traved over 25 miles to ride these trails and i dont think it was worth it...I might try back in a month or two to see if any one has been doing any upkeep.
