Welcome to the mountain bike trails at Ferdinand State Forest. There are five bike trails at Ferdinand totaling 8.8 miles. The bike trails are also hiking trails, as well as partially wooded trails and wooded roads. The trails are marked with Carsonite brand posts with a blue bike decal. Theyall range in difficulty from moderate to moderately difficult. While riding the trails, bikers should be prepared for the occasional thorn or scrape. The trails start at a double trailhead in the first parking lot on the right as you enter the property. The north trailhead starts the Foxey Hollow Trail, which travels north from the parking lot and is approximately 1.3 miles in length. The Foxey Hollow comes to an end at the intersection of the Firetower Trail and the Twin Lakes Trail. Turning left will allow you to stay on the Firetower Trail and turning right will lead you through the large campground which will loop around and connect to the Twin Lakes
Trail. The Firetower Trail is approximately 1.2 miles in length and merges at the Firetower with the Kayana Trail, which is approximately 2.6 miles in length. This trail loops around the northeast corner of the property and becomes the Twin Lakes Trail, which is approximately 1.9 miles in length and runs along the east side of the property. Taking the south trailhead at the parking lot begins the South Ridge Trail, which is approximately 1.8 miles in length. This trail runs along
the south side of the property and merges with the Twin Lakes Trail on the propertyĆ­s southeast side by Fossil Lake.
We want you to have a great time while biking at Ferdinand. For the enjoyment of all our visitors, please keep a few things in mind.
-Bikers should follow the trail markers and are not permitted to
stray off the marked trails.
-Bikers may use the improved (rock or paved) property roads to
make shorter loops but should remember that all the trails are
also hiking trails and that they should give the right-of-way to
all hikers and motorized vehicles.
