Trail Description
About this trail
Narrow, rolling singletrack weaving through the trees. Some technical
features including log piles and some rollers.

The trail starts out as a multi-use path. Take path to the left and follow it
~.4 miles. The singletrack will be on your right. Follow singletrack until you
return to your starting point. It currently has two loops but more trails are
being added.

Review: Fun and fast with a couple of rooty ascents/descents, some fun log overs. This set of trails has a nice combination of flow and twisty segments. I need to get out to Squaw more often. The trail system will be growing due the the efforts of LAMBA and Linn County. This trail has sections that remind me of Whiterock in Coon Rapids, IA. It is a great example of mountain bike trails mixed into multi-use and equestrian trails.

Review: This systems keeps getting better and better. The original singletrack trails are fairly tight and twisty, the new stuff is more open and flowing. If LAMBA and Linn Co. can facilitate pro-build of the remaining trail plan, this will be another excellent system for locals and visitors alike. Support their cause here... LAMBAonline.org

Review: I drove up to the park and parked at Meadowlark Shelter. I took the main walking trail to look for a singletrack trail entrance. The main walking trail was actually a really nice and fun speed ride that is wide with some nice up and down hills. Great for a quick fitness cardio speed run when you are a bit low on time.

The entrances for the singletracks are all well marked. Most of the trails were very well groomed and in great condition. I really enjoyed some of the more difficult obstacles. I kept looking at my maps and I do have to admit that I was 100% lost the whole time that I was riding the singletracks. A few numbered or section name markers would have helped. This was not a huge loop and not overly complicated. It is also surrounded by the main walking trail all around it, so it is not a deal breaker.

Overall, it was an awesome ride. This trail is closed from October 1 to January 30 every year.

*Update*
Return visit was awesome. Additional intermediate trails have been added with very tight technical singletrack and many more intermediate features (tight switchbacks, log piles, dirt humps, etc) added for those who want a more challenging ride. The trails are fairly well maintained. There aren't a ton of riders on this one, so you may need to clear out a few branches along the way. Caution! There are 2 crossings that pass under the power lines that are sandy and have partially washed out deep ruts because of all the rain we've had this year. I suggest to walk those sections.

*Update #2*
Several miles of additional green trails have been added very recently. This is becoming a great place very similar to Beverly Park, with more varied trails now available for all levels of riders.

Review: Fairly flat singletrack once you get on the trail that weaves its way through the trees. A few switchbacks and tight turns, only a few obstacles, a nice, easy going trail. The main trail to get you to the singletrack is a beginner route while the singletrack itself is beginner/intermediate mostly due to trail width and what rocks/roots you do encounter on the trail.
