A roller coaster of fun, narrow singletrack with high speed dips and some wooden bridges, logs, roots, and a few rocks.

Davey Dogwood Park is open dawn to dusk.

Need to Know

This park is completely free to ride in. The pavilion can be reserved. The new bathrooms are currently under construction, but should be finished this year. Bring lots of water as there is no water there.

Palestine has a few great places to eat or drink for an after ride meal or beer. Local places include Chips (burgers), Shep's (bbq), Pint and Barrel Drafthouse, as well as Magnolia Cafe.

The Gateway Travel Plaza on Hwy 155 (near loop) offers clean restrooms and single showers for $9. There is a Denny's inside also.

Description

This is a short trail but fairly twisty with quick elevation changes. All of the bridges are on the low point between a short descent and quick ascent, making them fun and high speed. One of the northern section's bridges offers a jump-like exit to catch some air. One small berm is built at the north end. There are some larger roots mixed throughout and a few small clusters of rock (not technical) to keep it interesting.

The lolly-pop style loop can be ridden in either direction, but I prefer clockwise (mainly due to hit the small jump-like exit after that bridge and to use the berm). This trail can be linked up with the old Davey Dogwood bike trail, the short nature trail in the middle of the park, and the new, unfinished green-blazed trail.
