Family Friendly At the Putnam County Park there's a city pool, an 18-hole frisbee golf course, and a large playground.


This is a crazy fun trail system that makes great use of the area for a lot of mileage. You'll want to ride it over and over again!


The trail system (main loop) is approximately eighteen (18) miles in length and is appropriate for all levels of riding from beginner to expert. The trails are flowy and require a moderate skill level for the most technical areas. The trailhead is located by the shelter near the front of the park. A kiosk beside the trailhead contains a map of the entire course, along with signage instructions. The course is designed and marked to be ridden counterclockwise, but can be ridden in both directions.

The trails are well marked with red arrow plates that mark the main loop. Each major intersection is numbered and contains a smaller map indicating your position on the course. The yellow arrow plates at each intersection indicate shortcuts from the main loop, which allow you to plan the ride best for you.

This is a beautiful trail system with amazing infrastructure that includes fifteen bridges, more than one hundred drains and several banked turns. There are absolutely no wet or muddy areas on the course, and it is considered the go to place to ride when neighboring trails are too wet. The course has approximately 1,800’ of climbing and will certainly test your cardio fitness. The must-ride trails include Faceplant, Gunrange and Overlook. There are group rides on Tuesday and Thursday at 6:00 p.m. weather permitting. The beginner riders generally stay on the lower trails.
