Klondike County Park

Average Rating:    (4.36 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 11

Hogsback Trail - narrow ridge-riding with tight switchbacks. Powerline Trail - technical, rocky, more tight switchbacks. Strip Mine Loop - very rocky & technical, sheer dropoffs await you just feet from the trail. Donkey Kong Loop - 2 steep sections will test your skills. You can ride all of the trails here and the fire-roads that connect them (about 5.5 miles) or pick your favorites and ride them several times.

Summary:
Short downhill style loop called the hogsback on the north part. Doubletrack to the back for donkey kong, Donjo's trail and the strip mine loop. All very technical including a newly built skills section in the back on the donkey kong complete with teeter totters, skinnies, wooden structures and a some jumps. This is as close as you'll get to a freeride park in missouri.

Recommended Route:
Any and all. The place is setup like a hub with each trail being short making for multiple loops based on what you feel like doing.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Matson Hill
Lost Valley
Greensfelder

Summary:
If you like a plethora of switchbacks and fifty percent of the ride being on a narrow trail where one slip could land you practically killing yourself down a 70 degree incline, this is the place for you. The trails are technical and fairly demanding. I enjoyed the ride but was not expecting what I encountered. It's a gorgeous park overlooking the river and would encourage you to ride. I just wish I had a full suspension(specialized stumpjumper FSR) to tear down the trails with.

Chubb, Castlewood

Summary:
Short technical loops high above the Missouri River. Park is very nice and never very crowded. Nice showers available in the campground area. These trails are not intended for the beginner rider, but they also aren't really that hard. For more information and a detailed trail map, go to:

Recommended Route:
I like parking near the conference building, riding up the paved trail to the top of Hogsback, down Hogsback, then over to ride donkey kong clockwise, then up to Strip Mine and ride it counter-clockwise, down Donjo's, then down through Power-line, back to the car. Evaluate any wounds and then do it in reverse.

Technical: Chubb, Greensfelder
Fast & Fun: Lost Valley, Matson, Castlewood, Quail Ridge
Epic: Berryman, Council Bluff

Summary:
Klondike is a great new state park with 2 short trails. While the trail to the left of the club house is not very difficult, the second trail that ends with the donkey kong loop is very technical and rewarding by its fantastic views. When I was there for the first time I had problems finding the second trail. Just go west towards the camp grounds where you will find the rest rooms and showers (they actually work and the doors are unlocked). The trail entrance is to the south just outside those buildings. The people who built these trails did a fantastic job! The trail is only a few minutes from the wineries in Augusta...so shower after the ride and get out there :)Tip: print the map off of this site and bring it with you. There are b/w maps available from the club house....but they are not very clear...

Summary:
Great variety. Sheds water well. Worth the travel out there to ride. Look for new trail milage in the future, as well as some obstacles (elevated bridges, jumps, etc...) This is my favorite nearby trail

Recommended Route:
Donky Kong - clockwise Hogsback - counterclockwise Do it all both ways since it's so short.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Lost Valley (new singletrack portion in 2004)
Matson Hill
