      Farmdale Reservoir is managed by the Army Corps of Engineers, and they have allowed the creation of a very nice system of trails. There are approximately 15 miles of trails here, with an excellent mix of fast open stretches and tight, twisty singletrack, with many fun gravity dips and ravines. Farmdale also hosts a sweet downhill run, a MTX/dirt jump course, and a freeride/stunt section. Farmdale regularly hosts races in the I74 Race Series, as well as the annual PAMBA fall festival, and was home to the 2007 & 2008 Midwest Mountain Bike Festival.
