Mountain Biking Palmer Park

This place has trails for everyone. The park is surprisingly large despite its location in the center of town. The trails criss-cross every section of the park and can be combined for some really long rides. All the trails are well marked and are rated like ski slopes - green trails for beginners, blue for intermediates, and black diamonds for extreme riders. Lots of rocks, sand, and scrub brush. Many winding sections, rock drop offs, and great jumps. This trail is more technical in places than Ute Valley Park or other rides in town. A great place to ride after work or any time.

Getting there
From Academy Blvd. (heading south) turn right on Maizeland Rd. An entrance to the park is on the right just past the ballfields also on the right. Palmer Park is almost right in the middle of town (north of the airport, south of Chapel Hills Mall).
