Forest City

Forest City

This 100% singletrack trail system starts with prime hardwood forest riding on the north end, but transitions into beautiful pine forest riding towards the sourthern reaches of the property. Highlights include a desert-like slickrock section and a rock bluff overlook. Glade Runner is a 7 mile loop blazed in green. There are 4 additional, more difficult loops each about 1 mile long, which branch off the main trail. They are blazed in blue: GORT (Good Ol’ Rocky Top), Randy’s Crack, Amateur Hour, and Upper Cut.
The gravel/paved Ironworks bike path may be used to shorten a ride or create a different one by bypassing some areas. The trail now includes a one-way downhill flow trail constructed with the assistance of Trek Bicycles.

Services

None at trailhead. Water available across HWY KK at the Ironworks Path Pavilion. Plenty in St. James.

About the Park

Funded mainly by Route 66 Bike Shop in Rolla, the Forest City Trail should be fun for all levels of rider. Construction began in winter of 2009/2010. 4 additional technical loops were added in 2010-2014.

All good. No trees down. New stunts are fun. Someone really trimmed up Randy's Crack... 'nuff said about that.

Couple downed trees which require dismounting, however my chainsaw thinks it's too freaking hot to run!
