Mountain Biking Thomas Park

***   Add a review
#45 of 94 mountain bike trails in Iowa
#6,301 in the world

Trail is some great singletrack with some tight corners and switchbacks, log
rides, pumpable rollers, and quick elevation changes. LAMBA is doing some
great work and the trail will be expanding.

Follow trail up as it winds up the hill. At the blue/black intersection, take the
black route until it ends. Then turn around and ride the same trail back
down. It's just over 1 mile each way.

    All uphill to the top with some turns along the way. I walked a good portion of the way up. A bit too much of a climb for my style of riding. Not too impressed with that part of it. The ride back down was pretty good.

    To correct the description above: Follow the hiking trail over the bridge and up the hill, not hit.

    If you live in the area, this is an awesome trail to hit. Perfect for a quick ride after work just to hit some dirt. The beginning of the trail starts out with some decent climbing and since it's an out and back, you get to enjoy the downhill at the end of your run. It also has at least one awesome log ride.

    It's a bit short, but LAMBA is working on expanding it.
