Fun Loop on the banks of the Red River. Local Trailbuilders have been working hard to make this an adventure you can find right in town. Easy access at Gooseberry parking or across the river on the ND side from Lindenwood Park. The trail weaves around the banks and circumferences Gooseberry Park. It is an easy to intermediate trail with a few features and structures built into the terrain. It can be challenging to navigate in some spots so ask a local if you need clarification. Park can be pretty busy at times, but this is easy access in town for a spin. Horn park is located just to the south of Gooseberry and easily accessible via bike for an additional 1-2 miles. (Please do not go through the backyard private property on the far south end to access Horn. Go up to the street and come back down the dike.)

Access Info

Best access from Gooseberry Park in Moorhead, but easily accessed from Lindenwood Park just across walking bridge and head into the trees on the right.

       As one of the locals who build and ride these trails regularly, I can say this is a pretty fun little trail right in town. It has enough variety that it doesn't get boring and can be as challenging as you want it to be by picking up the pace.
