Trail Description
About this trail
This is a new trail built by volunteers and Route 66 bike shop. Counter clockwise or clockwise either way it's pretty easy. There are a few areas (creek crossings) that may be challenging for beginners but a slightly experienced rider will have no issues with this trail. Lots of rocks and not much elevation gain.

Update 6/17/14:

For 2014 Forest City is upgraded with an additional 1.5 miles of trail and a new downhill-only pump/flow trail. Updated maps are available at the trailhead most of the time, and also can be easily downloaded from

Review: Pretty large variety of terrain, it can go from rocky and technical to fast and flowy in an instant. Multiple trails for a wide variety of skill levels. The trails are nicely maintained and the features are great fun and of solid build quality.

Review: This is a top notch MO singletrack! If you like the challenge of navigating rocky ascents and descents, fast-moving, pine-needle covered switchbacks and flat stretches, and some advanced bhiking sections where walking your bike up stair-stepped Rock formations is no small feat, this trail will be a favorite. The trail is very well marked, well maintained, and loops around beautiful sections of conifer and deciduous forest. I don't consider it a beginner trail because of the technical maneuvering through rocks, but that's just my opinion. It's a fantastic trail!

Review: Quite a few rocks many options to take (easiest or hard) tracks, hard tracks add roughly a mile but end up right back at the sign or at least real close. Great ride, will go again when I'm in better shape :)

Review: Went today, 12/09/15 and it was beautiful. Got a flat near the end but regardless it was a blast. If you push yourself fast enough it can be pretty challenging at parts. Trail was in great shape, and there were no fallen trees.

Review: Very similar to Greens and Lost Valley; a fast and somewhat technical ride (if you choose to). In as much as it's 1 1/2 hours from Wildwood I would only go to add variety to my riding

Review: Rode it for the first time today. Trial was very nice and easy to follow. Side trails where posted and a little more difficult but still a great ride. Was a few wet spots but 99% of trail is dry.

Review: Unfortunately the trails were too wet to ride without the possibility of creating damage. I did ride the Monkey Barrel (conservatively) a couple of times (once in each direction) to get some dirt on the tires. This section was fun and in drier conditions looks like a fast track. The trail is wide enough to get some speed. I hope to travel back to experience the rest of the trail. Kudos to the maintainers for such a nice riding opportunity.
