      Franke Park is the go-to mountain biking destination for the residents of Fort Wayne There may not be any black-diamond trails, but the ones it does have are fast and flowy - making them awesome at high speeds!

      Some of the trails are a bit rooted, but they are still great riding and the best trails around!

      Here's a tip from a local: Cross the creek if you dare and ride Goshen Loop! The trails on the other side of the creek are less-used and a blast!
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      Parking google parking directions
      Access Info:
      Enter Franke Park from Sherman Blvd, then turn left at the traffic circle for the Zoo. Follow the signs for "BMX" and "MTB" and park in the BMX track parking lot.
