Description

Cowles Park in East Grandy offers well over 15 miles of easy to difficult trails. Many of these trails were created for and by mountain bikers but the park also attracts hikers, trail runners and dog walkers.

The singletracks are amazing. They wind through the woods seemingly never going in a straight line for more than a few feet untill you have to make a course adjustment. Mostly smooth, they do offer some technical chllenges and a few short hills.

Expect to return, you won't be able to explore all these trails in one ride.

The only one rule is - Don't Ride When The Trails Are Muddy.

Some of the trails are color coded. But most aren't. There's is a QR Code for the Trail Forks interactive map on the main signboard.
