Overview

Mostly singletrack with rocks, roots, and rollers. Ames offers rides for the beginng to intermediate rider. While rides starting from the main parking lot offer smooth fire road and transition to singletrack the Chestnut Street side of the park offers a lot more.
Dogs: Leashed

Need to Know

Parking on Chestnut Street allows for greater access to singletrack routes. Parking in the main lot can be a little crowded.

Description

Starting out at the Chestnut Street fire road access point I typically head east towards the power lines. This will bring you to either the Witch Trail or Tobin's Ridge Loop. After exiting Tobin's Ridge Loop you'll be back on the fire road. Following the fire road south there will trail on the right that will push west parallel to the pond. This one of the few really good downhill sections of the park. Immediately after the hill you'll hit a series of bridges and will loop around into the west side of the park. Here you'll find a series of rollers and will be very busy on your bike. Keep on this trail until you loop around back to fire road. Continue on this side of the park there are a lot of trails to stay busy.
