Summary:
Credit should to to someone (I do not care who) that these trails are there at all. However, frankly, what I saw was quite small and poorly maintained. Some trail ran steeply down the fall lines ... fun, I guess, but subject to erosion. Areas near the creek were eroded badly. Nearby Loomis trail is designed better but even smaller and also suffering some neglect.

Summary:
Rolling singletrack and some steep downhill portions. Great for nearly all skill levels. There are parts I clear like a pro, and others I can't quite get yet. Short, but fun. As to what "The Unrecognized" has to say, well- his or her skills at the english language adaquately portray the maturity level that was displayed. These kinds of comments (Annonymous internet comments) have no place here- to this person I say "Get a CLUE!" I've personally seen the bike shop go in and create a better trail, where as the "Neighborhood Kids" are tearing trails up and tearing trees down. They are literally destroying the park in which the trails run. I support the bike shop because I know these guys- and if "the unrecognized" spent half a second in the shop talking with them they'd change the tune they sing so loudly here.

Recommended Route:
Ride whichever route strikes your fancy, it's a great place to ride. But, don't forget the south end, it's often overlooked, but it's the best part!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Brushy Creek Rec Area is nearby, lots of trails there as well, but they are also open to equestrians too.

Summary:
First of all I would like to state that team joker (team poser more like it) didn't make the trails back there. granted they may have made 15% of the trails but the neighborhood kids are what made the park what it is today. I don't think that its right for the bike shop to take the credit for the long hours that me and my friends put into the trails, all there doing with it is using it as advertisment for a poorly ran business i may add. there as crooked as they come. so as a warning if your ever riding in Fort Dodge and your bike breaks down don't support these people. So now that the truth is known i hope everyone goes and enjoys the fruits of me and my friends labors. we either majorly trimmed up or made some sick down hills that may have you peeling bacon weeks after you ride them and some fun rolling sections, simply put its got something for everyone.enjoy

Recommended Route:
taking the regular race trail is fun but theres so many different trails in the park that its fun no matter where you go

Other recommended trails in the same area:
brushy creek is an awesome spot to go also

Summary:
This trail is the home of the 2001 NORBA Iowa State MTB
Championship Race and also the 2001 NORBA MTB Regional
Championships. The trail was built and is maintained by
Team Joker Racing and The Bike Shop Inc. in Fort Dodge.
The Fort Dodge Parks & Rec. Dept. has been very supportive of this project and we hope you enjoy the efforts of everyone involved in this project.
This trail has been ridden by Pro's and Beginners, the feedback I get from everyone is that this is the one of the most diverse trails that they have ever rode!!
The other comment is, they can't belive it's located in a City Park.
This trail has short steep climbs a fairly long downhill run and is almost all in the woods and its in town!!
The race route we use is about 3.5 to 4 mi. long
but there are lots of loops you can ride.
ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!!!

Recommended Route:
Start at the big oak tree behind the bandshell. Go right or left. There are lots of loops that can be rode.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
While your in town you should check out the Brushy Creek Rec. Area. There are a lot of good trails there as well. Be on the lookout for horses as they use these
