Mountain Biking Upper/ Lower Lizard/ Flow/ Candy

****   Add a review
#87 of 92 mountain bike trails in Iowa
#12394 in the world

Marked and Maintained!!    New trail system that is SMOKING fun...well done and props to the people doing this.

The trail is fast, smooth, and has something for everyone

Lower Lizard is flowing....green and blue, hedges more towards the  green but a few bridges and such that make you pucker.

Upper Lizard/ Flow/ Candy....its awesome....not quite 4 miles of action...legit green and blue...with a few black loops...they are fun and worth it!!

Legit speed, climbs, flow, and Fun...and yes Candy is amazing!!

Well done Fort Dodge!!

Getting there
Right now (as of summer 2020), it is hard to find. Park or ride to the Lizard Creek Access Parking lot. Go over the train tracks. Make an immediate right on the not very noticeable path. Go past the no trespassing sign. Don't worry, you have permission to be on the trail. Enjoy the challenging climbs, some real exciting downhills, and an awesome finish that the builder calls "candy."..that is for Upper Lizard. Lower Lizard runs west along Lizard creek...trailhead is just west of the canoe launch.
