Mountain Biking Squaw Creek

****   Add a review
#22 of 94 mountain bike trails in Iowa
#3,229 in the world

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.

    There is a definitive "mountain bike trail" trailhead marker now. If you enter the park from the north side turn right on big bluebell ave and take it until it seems like you've circled around and are coming out of the park. You'll see the sign on the right and all the cars with bike hitches.

    There is a little something for everyone on this trail. Some jumps, narrows, and nice rollers. It's well kept and definitely worth checking out!

    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

    *Updated September 2017.
    The overall trails have been expanded to 9 miles (new green trails), and there are more miles in the future expansion plans. This is becoming a great place with more varied trails now available for all levels of riders. You can also ride the large multi-use outer loops and connectors for an additional 5 more miles.

    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.
