Review: First time riding the trails, was in town with for a sports event. Trails system is not long but worth the effort to ride. Fun tight single track course with off shoots of the main loop. If you ride all the fingers you'll get a nice workout. LT, sugar bottom, rockcut, and kickapoo down were a lot of fun. Local riders were friendly and helpful with suggestions of trails to ride. Some of the bridge crossing were pretty narrow which added a little more excitement to the ride! I would suggest trying it out as a first time rider.

Review: Short trail system with lots of challenging sections. You have to ride ALL of them to appreciate why it's the number one trail in Iowa.

Review: System has grown since the last time I was here. The trails are starting to show some age with roots getting exposed but you can see where they are continuing the maintenance really well in the more trouble spots. The mileage is up to almost 7 on my computer. L.T. and Jubilee trails have gotten a lot longer and are REALLY good. Actually, all the trails left me smiling and I saw what looked like some really big jumps and drops on a new trail going in- too big for me I'd like to watch someone else hit it!

I followed the route layed out on the website- left off the blacktop and right everywhere else- could not believe I was in Iowa! If they keep building trails like this I may have to move back to the Quad Cities! The technical trails have routes around most- others are walkable. Take care on Blue Mound- THAT trail has stuff that will sneak up on you!

Review: Absolutely the best trail system in all of Iowa. The guys and gals at FORC (Friends of Offroad Cycling - qcforc.org) are an amazingly organized and driven bunch of riders.

Review: Great little trail. It's built well, facilities and map at the parking, trail markers everywhere. Now it's rideable by fatbike but I want to come back with normal bike after snow is gone and experience in full this fast and flowy network.
It deserve 5 stars, no doubt.

Review: One excellent trail system! Trail is set up on two loops (think an 8) with all trails branching off from those. If you continually turn right, you'll hit everything. Trails are mostly uni-directional and properly signed. A comprehensive trail map is provided in the parking lot. Jubilee is a must ride. The amount of work put into that trail is amazing. Palos was a close second, but for different reasons. It was just a great trail. L.T. was also a great trail to ride. It's also the longest black diamond trail. If you're within a few hours drive, you need to go ride this at least once.
