Mountain Biking Frog Hollow Nature Trail

*****   Add a review
#23 of 163 mountain bike trails in Missouri
#1,558 in the world

This trail was formerly known as West Edgewood. Access to the trail has been made easier with a new bridge from the trailhead spanning Wears Creek. An extension is being constructed on the west end of the loop that will boost the total distance to approximately four miles. Completion is scheduled for the fall of 2015. The trail is open to hikers, runners, and mountain bikers.

    This trail was awesome! I had a great time. Enough technical stuff to keep it interesting but plenty of fast smooth descent. Watch for hikers and trail runners. Best to ride clockwise.

    This is a great, quick, and techy trail. Lots of quick descents and steep short climbs. It the best maintained trail in Mid-Missouri. The trail has features added almost every week. If you live in Mid-Missouri, it's a must ride.

    The trail is fun and has some technical downhills that don't require to much climbing. It has ways to make it shorter but that is usually not needed because it is short, a little over three miles. If you want to make it longer you can ride the trail both ways, the trail is very different backwards. Great trail over all.

    This trail has recently had a little over 1 mile added to the western side. This mile of trail makes it a very fun and challenging trail. While I rated the trail intermediate overall there are some more advanced technical rock features, a little exposure, and tight switchbacks but nothing unrideable. There are a few areas that hold water for an extended period of time but overall the trail is in great shape. When you ride it be on the lookout for hikers / walkers. It is popular with them due to greenway proximity. And, reward yourself with a giant beer at the Mexican restaurant up the hill when you're done!!!

    West Edgewood Trail is entirely contained on a single hillside owned by the city. The tread consists of many switchbacks and drainage crossings, providing a short but challenging and extremely fun ride. The short length is the only drawback to this unique trail. UPDATE 10/11/13: For the last couple of years this trail was in need of some TLC. Due to the efforts of a couple of local riders the trail is back to its former glory! If you are looking for a ride to increase your endurance, this one is not for you. But if you are looking for something to challenge your skills with tight switchbacks, drainage crossings, and plenty of roots and rocks, you're in the right place. Why not give it a try? Afterward there is a sub shop, coffee house, or Mexican restaurant within a half mile of the trailhead for relaxing and telling stories about your ride.
