Grand Vue Park’s recently renovated mountain biking trails cover 21 miles of hilly terrain throughout the park with scenic stops along the way. The trail is marked with an orange diamond blaze system with a reflective border to aid night rides. Usually starting at the main office, riders start at the double track and ride to the Mountain Bike Trailhead. The course is technical in some areas and is geared towards intermediate and advanced riders. There is a hiking and biking friendly 4 mile double track for novice and beginner riders. More trails for beginners will be coming soon along with a skill building course. All riders are encouraged to wear a helmet, you are riding at your own risk. Be sure to check out our schedule of events that include 5ks, mountain bike group rides and races, trail walks, and volunteer trail maintenance days.
