Mountain Biking Forest City Trail
#13 of 158 mountain bike trails in Missouri
#914 in the world
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.
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 route66bicycles.com/get/shreddy.
