This trail system was built by a professional mountain bike trail builder. Great XC flow in the cliffs and hills around the lake. Excellent signage and three well-built, brand new bridges during the course of the entire circuit.
Family Friendly: The green trail is great for kids to cruise around the lake.
You’ll start from the gravel lot just north of 151st street off of 149th. You have three trail options - all clearly marked. A green trail wraps around Collinsville Lake. A blue trail (1.4 miles) weaves in and out of the trees and cliffs above the lake in true XC style. A short black section of trail connects with the blue trail (0.9 miles). It’s not too difficult. It gets the back rating because it’s skinny with a steep drop to the north. Finally, there’s and slightly more technical section of blue trail that connects with the whole trail system. There’s a total of about 4 miles.
There’s a couple of pretty decent climbs of about 12% gradient. Not too long though. The rest is flowy ups and downs with berms on the tight corners. You’ll hit three well-built bridges along the way. Signage is excellent so you’ll never get lost.
